Selection as a Best Practice is more than a single moment of recognition. While it is well-deserved proof of growth, commitment, and hard work, more importantly, it’s the next step in elevating your practice—and your role as a leader in shaping the future of our industry.
In addition to local, regional, and national industry press coverage, honorees will be introduced at CooperVision’s Best Practices Summit and invited to attend AOA to solve some of the industry's most challenging problems as a team. You’ll gain valuable insights and perspectives from your cohort, and have the opportunity to share your experience with others on expert panels and events around the country as a recognized leader in our field.
Together, you’ll have the opportunity to answer some of the most pressing questions other practices are challenged with today, provide tools to help them excel, and likely find more inspiration for your own practice.
Being a 2017 Best Practices honoree has been an exhilarating experience. I have met and made friends with some truly innovative pioneers in the field of optometry. My experience has strengthened my desire to make my practice one that impacts the lives of the people in my community.
Being a part of Best Practices over the past year has allowed me to build a handful of really meaningful relationships with amazing people in our industry. Both fellow Best Practices honorees as well as industry leaders met along the way at Best Practices events, I've been able to connect with some incredible folks who have already helped me to improve my practice. Simply being named a Best Practices probably doesn't mean much if it's just a plaque you place on your wall. But embracing the opportunity that Best Practices presents to learn from the best is what has made it worth my efforts and time.
It was a real honor to be chosen as one of CooperVision's Best Practices this year. The experience of meeting the other Best Practices doctors and the staff of CooperVision who are directly involved with this program has been phenomenal. The trip to Pleasanton, CA was a true "red carpet" experience in which I made good friends and memories with everyone involved. The recognition from CooperVision as a Best Practice has provided me with valuable information, resources, and relationships that I will cherish for years. I look forward to being a part of this program as an alumnus and can't wait to see what CooperVision has planned for the future.
