SAN RAMON, Calif.—CooperVision is kicking off in November its new ECP Viewpoints Peer-to-Peer Virtual Learning Series, a collection of educational sessions presented by eyecare professionals for eyecare professionals. During each webinar, practitioners will host discussions about a variety of relevant eyecare topics, sharing insights, best practices for success in the current environment, and peer-reviewed and other pertinent research. The series will continue throughout 2021. “Through our partnership with eyecare professionals, we have come to recognize the value of peer-based, insight-driven conversation for today’s practitioners,” Michele Andrews, OD, vice president of professional and government affairs, Americas, CooperVision, said in the announcement.
“We’re excited to offer these sessions virtually, as it provides an opportunity for more eyecare professionals from across the U.S. and Canada to not only access this education, but to add their own voices and experiences to the discussion,” she said.
The ECP Viewpoints Peer-to-Peer Virtual Learning Series topics will be updated approximately every 12 weeks, and sessions covering each topic will be offered on multiple dates and times in effort to accommodate practitioners’ schedules. The sessions are free and open to doctors and their staff.
