Orlando Super Weekend

Orlando Super Weekend 2018

October 27-28, 2018

NSU Orlando Campus

4850 Millenia Blvd.
Orlando, Florida 32839

12 Hours of CE/8 Transcript Quality Hours 

Florida Jurisprudence & Prevention of Medical Errors

Overview

We return to Orlando twice this year offering 8 hours of TQ/General credit in addition to the Florida required courses. Dr. Bill Townsend is a nationally and internationally known speaker and optometric educator on a wide range of topics, including dry eye, allergies, and ocular disease.  Carlo Pelino provides an update on orals.  Dr. Pelino fully understands how clinical findings in the back of the eye (the retina) are a reflection of what is happening throughout the body. “What you find in the retina allows you to make correlations and conclusions about what is happening with the rest of a patient’s health,” he said. “For example, you can look in the eye and know if the patient’s diabetic condition is under control.”   Drs. Barry Frauens & Joe Sowka complete the lineup and provide the Florida required courses.

The Nova Southeastern Campus in Orlando is in very close proximity to the Millennium Mall. You will see it on the frontage road to I-4 and close to Universal Studios.
