Virtual AOA on Capitol Hill 2021

May 23rd-25th, the AOA’s single-largest annual advocacy event and centerpiece of optometry’s federal advocacy efforts brought together over 700 registered doctors, paraoptometrics, students and industry leaders, to champion five crucial areas of legislation and advocacy that could immediately affect optometry practices. With Congressional offices still closed for the foreseeable future due to the public health emergency, advocates once again convened virtually at a consequential time for the 117th Congress.
