Foundation announces winners of 2013 scholarship awardsAugust 6, 2013
This scholarship fund, one of the earliest endowed gifts to Optometry Cares, was established through a bequest from the late Seymour Galina, O.D., a long-time member of the AOA.
Optometry Cares® invested the original gift and now uses the earnings to fund the $2,500 Dr. Seymour Galina Scholarship Grant in perpetuity.
The foundation selected Jay Lytle from The Ohio State University College of Optometry as the national winner for the InfantSEE® Scholarship Grant.
Lytle will be awarded $5,000, and the runner-up, Cameron Horch from Pacific University School of Optometry, will receive $2,500.
The InfantSEE® Scholarship Grant was created by Vision West, Inc., a leading national ophthalmic product buying group, to promote InfantSEE®, a public health program of Optometry Cares® developed to provide no-cost professional eye care for infants nationwide.
