The USC Roski Eye Institute held an in-person summer program to introduce University of Southern California undergraduate students from underrepresented communities to careers in eye care. The event, “Eye Care for All: An Introduction to a Career in Eye Care,” garnered participation from students across the university.
The program was spearheaded by two USC Roski Eye Institute optometrists: Lernik Torossian, OD, and Kent Nguyen, OD — both assistant professors of clinical ophthalmology at the Keck School of Medicine of USC.
Throughout the two-day program, students had the opportunity to attend lectures, receive advice about careers in eye care, and supervised, hands-on experience dissecting a cow’s eye to study the organ both inside and out.
