Latest News OD Excellence Conference Planned to Help Optical Leaders ‘Innovate, Motivate and Succeed’ By Staff Wednesday, November 14, 2012 12:18 AM SAN DIEGO—“Navigate Your Future: Innovate…Motivate…Succeed” will be the theme for the 2013 OD Excellence National Conference, to be held at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel here, July 11 to 13. The third annual conference for the practice management group led by CEO Jerry Lieblein, OD, and chairman Jerry Sude, OD, will bring together leaders in the optometric, optical and ophthalmological community. “The feedback that we received from last year’s conference was great,” said Lieblein. “The one thing that really stood out was how much our members got out of information sharing and the ability to talk with other doctors who are facing the same challenges.” In addition to two hours of coaching opportunities with leading consultants and 13 hours of staff education, this year the conference has added six hours of practice management education and 10 hours of medical management. It will also include 70 vendors and alliance partners offering hands-on demonstrations covering the latest technologies and solutions. Registration begins Dec. 15.
