Young ODs Program

Designed for our young OD members 10 years or less in practice, our Young OD Program launched their first meeting in the Triad the fall of 2014 with great success. 

The Young ODs Program provides an opportunity for our younger members to connect and network, collectively share and embrace present issues facing young OD’s and optometry as a profession, and to start getting involved in the Society. This is done by putting together social events in different regions throughout the state.

Please join our group on Facebook and look for upcoming events in your area!
