2020 was not the year that any of us expected. As allied ophthalmic professionals (AOP), we were geared up, for “our” year. Instead, 2020 presented unrivaled health, economic, and social trials, each fraught with uncertainty.
One of the few things that has become clearer over the course of 2020, is that ATPO members are a true community. Amidst the disruptive changes and ongoing challenges, we are fortunate to be able to turn to trusted peers for support and guidance. Thank you ATPO members for commiserating, empathizing, and strategizing—and for lifting each other up over the course of this year! So, instead of celebrating “eye care,” this holiday season, let’s celebrate how much ATPO members care for one another—and let’s invite more members to join!
