In 2017, May Jarkas, practitioner and clinic faculty at the school, received her FAAO at Academy 2017 Chicago. We congratulate her and welcome her to the Quebec Chapter! The annual meeting of the Academy is gaining popularity with folks from Quebec, Canada. Optometrists, faculty and students were on hand at the Canadian Alumni reception in Chicago.
