Why I
Attend
Convention by Mildred M.G. Olivier, M.D., FACS

It gives me a chance to network with other physicians who share my goals and the challenges I face working towards decreasing health disparities. As the Co-Director of the Rabb-Venable Excellence in Research Program, I also look forward each year to meeting with the youngest generation of underrepresented minority residents and medical students to join our community. In addition to mentoring the new ophthalmologists, I coordinate the Eye Education Program and free screenings with AAO and the Ophthalmology section for NMA attendees and the community.
