The New Hampshire Optometric Association and its parent organization, the American Optometric Association, recently recognized two Conway Eye Care optometrists, Dr. Gary Cole and Dr. Angelique Sawyer, for their membership and service for 50 years and 10 years, respectively. Presenting the award was Dr. Andrea Thau, Secretary-Treasurer of the American Optometric Association.
The New Hampshire Optometric Association held its annual education conference and business meeting at the North Conway Grand Hotel October 18-20. Optometrists from around the state met to further their professional education, to discuss changes in the health and eye care arena, and to build relationships among colleagues, all while enjoying the sights and scenery of the Mt. Washington Valley.
In addition to the membership award ceremony, the NHOA held its annual elections, and Dr. Sawyer was re-elected to the position of Vice President for the state association. Conway Eye Care's third optometrist, Dr. Laurel Pulsifer, was recognized for her 25 years of membership and service during the 2011 NHOA meeting.
“The doctors of Conway Eye Care have long made it a priority to not only provide the highest quality eye care to their patients, but also to give back in return with service to their community and leadership in their profession,” Said Dr. Cole.
