President of Zoetis to be ‘Power Hour’ Guest on Oct. 16

FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J.—Clint Lewis, Jr. executive vice president and president of U.S. operations of Zoetis (Pfizer Animal Health) will be the featured guest on Wednesday’s Oct. 16 edition of “The Power Hour,” the weekly online radio talk show hosted by Gary Gerber, OD, founder of The Power Practice, a practice management company.

Zoetis, formerly a business unit of Pfizer, is a global animal health company which delivers quality medicines and vaccines, complemented by diagnostics products and genetics tests and supported by a range of services.

Said Gerber, “They don't have phoroptors, eyeglasses, don't deal with HIPAA, Meaningful Use or managed vision care. But, veterinarians have a lot in common with optometrists. Listen to the show as Clint Lewis discusses the ways veterinarians are dealing with an oversupply of doctors, Internet dispensing of medicine (starting to sound familiar?), too many vet schools, ‘patients’ shopping for prescriptions and other topics that you deal with on a daily basis. The parallels are uncanny, and if you'd like a new perspective on dealing with issues in your practice, tune in.”

“The Power Hour” radio shows are sponsored by Essilor of America, VSP Global, Optovue and Think About Your Eyes. The show, which can be heard online or by phone every Wednesday night at 9:00 p.m. E.T., is a live discussion vehicle for current practice-building events in optometry, political viewpoints and clinical topics.
