21st Annual Clinical Eye Care Conference & Alumni Reunion

Please join us for this annual event.  Most of our speakers are alumni from the respective classes being honored this weekend and our director for the weekend alumni and faculty Annette Bade, O.D., M.S., FAAO.  It’s great to see former students give back to the profession and community.

Our alumni reception will take place Saturday evening, April 29th from 6:00-8:00 at the Sonesta Beach Hotel in Fort Lauderdale.  All alumni are welcome to attend and the reception is free to all alumni and $30 for their guests. As we grow we found it necessary to revise how we honor our alumni with milestone anniversaries. Our 10 and 20 year classes (1997 & 2007) will receive complimentary CE for the entire weekend and the 5 &15 year classes are complimentary for Saturday only, other days would be charged a-la-carte pricing.

Thank you for considering NSU College of Optometry for your CE needs. This strong weekend program will be stimulating and rewarding for all who attend.
