I am pleased to invite you to the 2016 Mountain West Council of Optometrists Annual Congress to be held in the fabulous city of Las Vegas April 21-23, 2016. After a long cold winter, spring is the perfect time of year to escape to a city of luxurious hotels, fabulous restaurants, and a wide variety of shows and other entertainment sure to please everyone, not to mention a little gambling!
The 2016 Congress will be held at the sumptuous Aria Resort, with its fabulous restaurants and beautiful pool areas. While the setting is luxurious, the meeting atmosphere is casual and friendly allowing you to relax and enjoy your days while learning the latest updates in patient care. To qualify for the special room rate for our attendees please register through the MWCO room block.
Offering 24 hours of continuing education credit over three days will allow you to meet your total annual requirement at one meeting. The theme of this year's educational program is Focus on Today, Prepare for Tomorrow. With this theme in mind, we have courses focused on the best of today’s technologies in contact lenses and medical therapeutics along with courses to prepare doctors for diagnostic tests and therapeutic treatments in the future.
Recognizing optometry's role in the care of patients with ocular and systemic diseases, we have several of the nation’s top speakers covering diabetes and diabetic retinopathy, diagnosis and management of uveitis, neurological disease, nutrition and genetics in retinal health, in-office lab testing and many other related topics.
As a special optional offering, we have Hands-on Workshops on Laser for Glaucoma and More, Hybrid and Scleral Contact lenses, Ocular Surface Disease and Glaucoma/Retina allowing participants to gain valuable experience using new technologies and procedures. These workshops will have limited attendance to maximize the experience for attending doctors so sign up early to avoid being left out!
This year's congress provides a broad-based educational program to better enable you to provide exceptional care for your patients for many years to come. I hope to see you there!
