Berkeley Optometry Magazine
A Message to Alumni and Friends
Inside you will discover how your school is touching countless lives — students, patients, educators, and colleagues. We are are all extremely grateful for the support from alumni and friends of the School of Optometry, and we thank you and encourage your continued support of the work we do in preparing future generations of practitioners and educators.
While we know you want better and more frequent communication from us, be assured that we also want to hear from you. Please, stay in touch and let us know how we are doing to meet your needs as alums. We know that our responsibilities to you do not end upon your graduation!
If you have a private practice, please consider putting Berkeley Optometry Magazine in your waiting room after you are finished reading it — if you need an additional hard copy, please let us know. Perhaps the magazine will encourage some of your younger patients to consider a career in optometry!
