ICO’s Focus on Your Future summer program wrapped up on July 17. This week-long visit introduces ICO and the field of optometry to undergrads from underrepresented communities and groups.
Twenty participants from across the country met ICO staff, faculty, students, and alumni, and also explored Chicago. A thank you from one of the visitors reads, “It was a pleasure meeting each of you as well as the 19 other aspiring optometrists that I was able to get to know. The administration, faculty, students, staff, and members of the community that I encountered were very welcoming and hospitable. I value the opportunities I had for hands on learning and insightful speakers. As a result, we were able to learn a great deal from a dedicated team.”
We were honored to have these optometric achievers on-campus. We hope to see them all again very soon.
