The UIW Rosenberg School of Optometry was recently named the winner of the University Education Challenge, receiving a $5,000 unrestricted educational grant as its prize.
The University Education Challenge is a program hosted by ABB Optical Group and Paragon Vision Sciences as an effort to support the optometrists of tomorrow. Colleges participated in the challenge through online webinars on contact lens-related topics that were created and presented live by third-year students. The webinars were held monthly from September through May and were judged on overall webinar attendance, as well as scores of post-webinar surveys emailed to webinar participants.
UIW reportedly won based on the attendance and survey results of a webinar created and presented by third-year student Amy Belloli-Conner, which focused on the importance of contact lens cleaning and compliance after physical activities such as mud runs, color runs and water slide adventures.
