Each year, the Office of Alumni Relations, invites regional alumni to a series of professional CE programs, held in local communities throughout the country. These informal events include one hour of complimentary COPE-accredited continuing education, a College update during dinner, and networking opportunities. During the 2016 - 2017 series, over 90 alumni enjoyed NECO’s HomeTown programs.
HomeTown Series 2017 - 2018
Telemedicine Screening for Retinal Disease
Optometrists play an important role in identifying patients at risk for vision-threatening conditions, yet primary care settings may be the best site for identifying patients at-risk for visual disability.
Spend an evening with your colleagues and fellow alumni to learn why digital retinal imaging may be a valuable tool for evaluating patients with retinal and optic nerve disorders. This one hour COPE-accredited lecture delivered by Tony Cavallerano, OD ’72 presents an overview of a successful teleretinal imaging model for identifying patients at risk, for practice building, and promoting a comprehensive approach to improving access and adherence to care.
The evening will be facilitated by Tony Cavallerano, OD, '72, Executive Director of Clinical Training and Patient Care, Director of Professional Relations, and Adjunct Professor, at New England College of Optometry.
