Faculty Profile

Beth Harper, Clinical Faculty
It makes me smile to see the look on my students' faces when they finally master a skill they've been working on. It's what all teachers enjoy most, the "Ah ha!" moment when the clinical skills and classroom knowledge blend together.

Upcoming Events

I was especially drawn to NECO's emphasis on reinforcing classroom learning with a hands-on clinical approach starting in our first year with vision screenings and continuing in a variety of different sites around the city.
