Anne Zettek-Sumner and President Scott

At New England College of Optometry, the partnerships extend far beyond our 424 Beacon Street campus. On February 25, 2018, President Clifford Scott, OD, MPH, and Anne Zettek-Sumner, RN, M.Ed, teamed up to participate in the C.R.A.S.H.-B., (Charles River All Stars Has Beens) indoor rowing championships at Boston University.

President Scott is an avid rower, and Zettek-Sumner is a world-class coxswain. She also serves as the coordinator of NECO’s clinical Quality Improvement Program with UMass Medical Center.
