The American Academy of Optometry Foundation (AAOF) recently announced the University’s Pennsylvania College of Optometry (PCO) students Jordan Heidelbaugh ’18OD and Joshua Heersink ’18OD were recipients of the 2017 Practice Excellence Scholarship.
At the start of her third year of classes in 2015, Kelly Morse ’19OD began her school year as usual. She was working during her clinical rotation at The Eye Institute (TEI), the University’s Pennsylvania College of Optometry (PCO) clinical facility, feeling a little under the weather, but still seeing patients. In just five days’ from that moment, her life was about to change drastically.
Andrea Tyszka’s, MS, OTR/L, SIPT, energy is palpable and infectious when she’s in the classroom. The associate professor’s Occupational Therapy (OT) students even affectionately call her their OT mom because of her caring and positive nature.
Two new student organizations officially began this October, both with similar goals of welcoming and educating the Salus community about the populations they serve.
Each October, faculty, staff and students from the Blindness and Low Vision Studies department commemorate National Blindness Awareness Month by hosting an engaging activity for the Salus community. Earlier this month, they set up a photo booth, complete with props and facts about blindness and visual impairments so the Salus community could learn more about their profession.
