ICO’s annual summer program, Focus on Your Future, introduces underrepresented populations to the profession of optometry. Participants spend a week at ICO meeting staff, faculty, students, and alumni. They get to know both the city of Chicago and ICO’s world-class facilities.
This year, 14 participants came from as far as California and Puerto Rico. Focus on Your Future often inspires undergraduates to apply to ICO. Hopefully, we will be seeing some of these ambitious faces again.
