In the history of the profession of optometry, there is no individual who has had more impact on both public health policy and optometry than Dr. A. Norman Haffner. His early, passionate and visionary leadership created a generation of optometrists who have dedicated themselves to public health and to the importance of advanced education through programs such as the Master of Public Health degree (MPH). The Salus MPH program pays tribute to this unique individual through the establishment of the Haffner Public Health Scholarship Program
, the Haffner Chair, and the Haffner Legacy Fund.
