St. George Spring Quarterly Meeting

POSTPONED
Dear Doctors and St George Attendees,
Due to the increased concern with the COVD19 virus and Governor Herbert response statewide the Utah Optometric Association has decided at this time to reschedule our St George Spring meeting March 27th and 28th to a Fall meeting. This was not our ideal choice but with Doctors of Optometry being on the forefront of the medical community we feel it is important to set an example, listen and follow the ask from the state of Utah to reschedule this event. We have a hold on the Entrada’s only open weekend in the fall on Friday September 4th and 5th . This is also Labor Day weekend and a gorgeous time of year down there.  We will be following up further with more details.
 
We also want to make you aware of the AOA's response the COVID-19 pandemic. The AOA has set up a COVID-19 resource page as well as webinars regarding the outbreak. An article published today by the AOA speaks of Optometrists role in Congress' COVID-19 Relief Package. 

"While COVID-19 is a novel virus, as primary eye health care physicians we know that we are a critical part of the public health solution to protecting our practices and patients," says Barbara L. Horn, O.D., AOA president. "Together with our affiliates, the AOA is acting quickly to provide our member doctors with the information and tools needed to support practices and quality care, and we'll continue to do so throughout the crisis. As a first step, I encourage colleagues to register for a special AOA webinar, which will include billing and coding specifics, and also to reach out at president@aoa.org with questions, comments and concerns."

We are monitoring this situation and will do our part to keep you all updated. Thank you for your understanding
 
Sincerely,
 
Dr Court Wilkins
