At our first meeting of the school year, we heard from Dr. Zadnik, the Dean of the College of Optometry. She told us about her career, and how she rose up the ranks from an associate professor here at the college to now being the College of Optometry’s fifth dean. She spoke about a new concept that is emerging here at Ohio State — interdisciplinary health care, where all of the health sciences at Ohio State would work together to provide the best comprehensive care. Next, we heard from our club advisors Sally Haltom and Sean Gilbert, followed by Justin Griest and some current optometry students who all gave an overview of what to expect from the club and all of the resources available. Students were then taken on tours of the optometry school.
