Local optometrist is part of inaugural leadership program
Eric Gengenbach, OD, was recognized as a graduate of the Nebraska Optometric Association (NOA) and VSP/Eyefinity Leadership Program at the recent NOA Annual Fall Convention in Kearney.
The graduates were members of the inaugural class of the Leadership Program, which was founded to provide orientation, training and education for recently-licensed optometrists in Nebraska that will enhance their abilities to be successful practitioners and leaders in the profession, the association and their communities.
Participants completed five courses over the course of a year, with a curriculum featuring:
• Challenges and key issues facing the profession
• How to be an advocate for your practice and patients
• Keys to portraying a professional image in your community and practice
• Human relations tips for managing staff and working with volunteers
• Keys for personal and financial growth
The Leadership Program is sponsored by the Nebraska Optometric Association, along with VSP and Eyefinity.
