      For those that have yet to open the FOA Alert Email on Telemedicine, I would suggest that you take a moment to read it. Please, click on the link provided and then read a bit about the company's background supporters.  Scary times may be in the future for our profession.  The FOA as an organization is working to protect us, as OD's, and the misrepresentation made that this is an exam.

      Pass this on to any nonmembers that may not have received it.

      I have attached a flyer for a free grand rounds style conference that we have periodically.

      As you can see, the next one is Saturday, February 7.

      Dr. Iezzi is a retinal specialist from Rochester.

      He is doing some pretty interesting work including having placed a retinal prosthesis recently.

      These meetings are free, but there is not continuing education credit sought or issued.
