At the October 10th Annual Board of Directors meeting, pediatric ophthalmologist Dr. Ed Wortham completed his term, rotating off the Conexus Board of Directors. Dr. Wortham has been a long time friend, supporter, and advisor to Conexus and we are grateful for his service. The good news is that Dr. Wortham will continue to serve as Co-Chair of the Council for Pediatric Vision!
Replacing Dr. Wortham on the Board is Dr. Evan Silverstein, author of our study on technology based screenings. Dr. Silverstein, also a pediatric ophthalmologist, has already demonstrated enthusiastic leadership as a member of the Council for Pediatric Vision and we are honored to have him as a member of our Board of Directors.
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.
