The Conexus Council for Pediatric Vision met this morning in Richmond, VA. Exciting plans are being made for a ground breaking study, partnering with Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) that will likely change the way children are screened for vision problems throughout the United States.
“The mission of Conexus is to eliminate poor vision as barriers to success, and our vision is that every child reach their fullest potential,” said Conexus CEO Tim Gresham. “Our study will determine best practice public screening methods and protocols,” added Gresham.
Today Conexus held its kick off planning meeting for the 25th Annual Golf Classic. Never before in the 25-year history of the event has the committee come together for the first planning session with 40 teams already sold!!!
Early bird teams were entered into a one-of-a-kind raffle for a 23” x 21” Frederic Remington Bronze Sculpture. At the close of the meeting, Corrine Huber, Conexus Program Specialist, did the honors and pulled the winner from the pool of 40 teams.
We are pleased to announce, the winner is…..SunTrust! We will make arrangements to deliver the bronze to the winner in the near future with pictures to follow.
