This live web event has ended. Thank you for attending.
Ibironke is coming back to KAER by request! Her presentation in 2020 (the
week the world shut down due to COVID-19!) was so well-received by conference
participants and through online evaluations that it was clear attendees had so
much more to learn from her experiences serving eastern Kentucky residents and
her ongoing research in the world of vision. Opening the 2022 KAER
Conference, Dr. Ibironke will update attendees on the impact of COVID on
optometry preparation programs and the world of vision in general.
Likewise, she will share information on the relationship between
ophthalmologists and optometrists and how we all can increase services to the
unserved and underserved communities across Kentucky. The opening session
will end with a question and answer session with Dr. Ibironke.
- Participants will be able to identify the most commonly diagnosed visual impairments in the commonwealth of Kentucky during the past five years.
- Participants will identify the need for ongoing partnerships with the ophthalmologist and optometrist communities for child find opportunities and program planning purposes.
- Participants will recognize ophthalmologists and optometrists as a resource for information on trends in the community of children with vision loss.
