Registration is now open for the Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Association, International (NORA) Clinical Skills Pre-Conference (September 10-11) and 29th annual General Conference (September 12-13) at the Hyatt Regency Columbus in Columbus, Ohio.
“This year’s conference theme, Eye, Brain & Body Integration in Neuro Care, continues our commitment toward advancing professional knowledge and understanding of Neuro-Optometric care and encouraging strong working relationships among healthcare professionals,” NORA president Susan Daniel, OD, said in a news release.
The Clinical Skills program provides 16 hours of continuing education and includes both hands-on and lecture style presentations with emphasis on integrated therapeutic approaches to rehabilitation. It offers three different levels which run concurrently and cannot be taken simultaneously.
“New educational programs in our Clinical Skills pre-conference core curriculum will provide colleagues from different practice areas an opportunity to learn more about how to work together to achieve better results for patients,” said DeAnn Fitzgerald, OD, NORA Vice President and Conference Education Chair.
· A workshop created specifically for allied healthcare professionals that will provide attendees with a foundational understanding of the role of neuro-optometric rehabilitation for vision disorders.

The NORA General Conference offers up to 14 additional hours of continuing education for optometrists and allied professionals and features key opinion leaders from optometry and other specialties.
