Walt Mayo OD Is Guest on May 15 ‘Power Hour’

FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J.—Computers, mobile and digital media, and featured guest Walt Mayo, OD, are the focus of the Wednesday May 15 edition of the “The Power Hour,” the free weekly online radio talk show hosted by Gary Gerber, OD, founder of The Power Practice, a practice management company.

Stated Gerber, “If you use the words ‘optometry’ and ‘computers’ in the same sentence, Walt Mayo will probably be in that sentence, too. Walt is an established and respected authority on all aspects of optometric computing from setting up the first viable Listserv, other creative uses of the Internet, managing Facebook and Twitter, and consulting many eyecare practices on these topics and more. If you have a question about your how your practice can benefit from a cool smartphone app, innovative ways to use a tablet, or for that matter what's the best tablet to buy, the odds are Walt will have a great answer for you.”

The show, which can be heard via Skype or 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.
