Faculty Profile

Fuensanta Vera-Diaz, PhD, Assistant Professor of Optometry
You understand that being a doctor-in-training means to behave as a doctor everyday - not just when you interact with patients, and not just when you wear these special white coats that you will be handed today - but each moment of your lives.

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.
