Planning for the Year Ahead: Embrace What Comes

Women In Optometry advisory panel members’ goals for 2017 reflect tremendous variety

For nearly 24 years—essentially her entire working career—Louise Sclafani, OD, FAAO, has been at the University of Chicago in Illinois. She’s currently clinical associate professor of ophthalmology and visual science and the director of optometric services; however, she anticipates that her role may be different in 2017. “In academia, you are required to follow the direction of new leadership, and this usually involves change. Having the resolve to do this over the years has brought me great opportunities to become a leader in the contact lens and dry eye specialties and to develop new skill sets in areas such as glaucoma. As I encounter these changes in my career, harnessing my strengths and experiences to embrace the future is my biggest priority.”
