OD Excellence selects Optometry Cares® as charity of choiceMay 31, 2013
OD Excellence (ODX) plans to announce the selection of Optometry Cares® – The AOA Foundation as its optometric charity of choice during its 2013 National Conference in July.
ODX Chair Jerry Sude, O.D., also made a generous personal donation on behalf of OD Excellence.
OD Excellence was founded by leading optometrists to help ODs improve the quality of patient care, reinforce clinical skills and through education improving an OD’s ability to diagnose and provide the latest in ocular disease treatment.
“It is very important for us to work with a philanthropic group that supports AOA initiatives in the U.S.,” said Dr. Sude. “After reviewing the programs Optometry Cares® supports, there was no question this was the group to work with.”
Over the past few months, Optometry Cares® worked with Dr. Sude and ODX CEO Jerome Lieblein, O.D., to encourage other buying groups, alliances and their members to join them in choosing Optometry Cares® as their optometric charity of choice.
The official announcement will be at the 2013 ODX National Conference in San Diego, Calif., which focuses on preparing practices for health care reform. For more information, visit www.odexcellence.com/conference.
