Tuesday, July 9, 2013

Please join me in congratulating Amanda Furr (OD 2013) who was just named the NATIONAL recipient of the Alcon Case Report Award. The report she authored entitled "Relationship between asymmetric, progressive glaucoma and cervical spine injury" with her (adjunct) faculty mentor, Lee Peplinski, was chosen as the best case report submitted from all Schools and Colleges of Optometry. Amanda won $1000 for having the best case report from IU, and an additional $5000 for having the best case report nationally. Alcon is encouraging her to publish this report, and has stated it is one of the best they have ever received through this competition.
