Listen to the podcast with Lauretta Justin, OD, founder of Optometry Divas, and Valeria Napoles, winner of the first Optometry Divas scholarship competition in 2021, talk about how the process of creating a business plan and getting comprehensive feedback on it has helped her more clearly identify her goals for her final two years at Nova Southeastern University College of Optometry. With a passion for myopia management services for the Hispanic population, Napoles has thought through her classes and career steps and even the size and layout of a potential future practice.
