Presented by doctors, for doctors, Jeffry Gerson, OD, FAAO, and A.

This event is offered twice in October so you can attend on the date that works best for your schedule. You won’t want to miss it – 97% of attendees of previous Premier Academy360 Diabetes CE Events agreed the material would enhance their practice and patient outcomes.

By attending the entire event, and if your practice has retinal imaging equipment, you will receive the American Diabetes Association® (ADA) Badge to display on your practice’s VSP® Find a Doctor Directory listing on vsp.com, which receives hundreds of thousands of visitors monthly. You will also earn two hours of complimentary COPE-accredited Continuing Education (CE) credits.  

Courses included during the event:  

New! Diabetes Update: What's New in 2022 (One hour of CE credit) 

This course will consider some of the most important advances in diabetes care during the last year, with emphasis on systemic management and new treatment options for diabetic eye disease, as well as practical tips you can implement in your practice. 

Nutrition and Eye Health (One hour of CE credit) 

This course will describe nutritional influences on common ocular diseases affecting the posterior segment, including age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma, in a fun and interactive virtual environment. 

Essential Medical Eye Care 

Presented by Natasha Strickner, VSP Senior Product Manager, this course provides an overview of how VSP is simplifying its supplemental medical eye care coverage to a single offering that makes it easier for your practice to leverage this coverage.   

See the Value of the ADA Badge:  

In a recent Review of Optometric Business article, David T. Kageyama, OD, FAAO, shared the importance of providing diabetes-related care to your patients and the additional value the ADA Badge can bring to your practice:  

As diabetes is the number one cause of blindness in working adults, it is essential to be able to discuss the risks of the disease with our patients. This badge clearly indicates to patients that the practice’s doctors have a significant interest in educating and managing patients who are at risk for, or living with, diabetes. 

Attaining the ADA Badge also entitles you to receive a complimentary, one-year membership to the ADA, which includes access to professional journals, significant discounts on events and course materials, networking opportunities, and more. 

*To receive your Premier Academy360 ADA Badge, at least one person per practice location must have attended this entire event and you must have retinal imaging equipment in your practice. More information is available at badging.premieracademy360.com.
