Peer-to-Peer Networking Events

Based on doctor request, there are now more ways for you to connect with your peers through in-person, virtual, and other community-building opportunities. These events can support you in enhancing connections with your peers by discussing issues that matter and support your long-term growth.

As an exclusive opportunity, practices participating in the Premier Program can now attend in-person doctor networking events around the country. These events are designed for you to network, connect, and have valuable peer-to-peer discussions on topics important to the industry today.

96% of attendees from 2021 agree the event provided valuable peer-to-peer networking.

Networking with other regional optometrists in this small roundtable setting allowed us to exchange excellent ideas. I was able to take back some great ideas to implement in my own practice. I look forward to future meetings with VSP like this one!” Jeanine Labrada, OD

Live peer networking events like these are just one more stepping stone in reaching your practice goals in partnership with the Premier Program.
