Girl Scout Vision Awareness Patch Launched
In February, 2018 Marietta Richman, a Para-optometric member of NJSOP and the AOA, as well as a Girl Scout Gold Award Recipient and Pre-Optometry college student launched the Girl Scout Vision Awareness Program in New Jersey. This is supported by NJSOP, the Favreau Health Foundation and the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore.
In order to earn the patch girl scouts must learn more about eye and vision health by either visiting an optometrist's office or having an optometrist attend one of their meetings. As such, the NJSOP Board of Directors has agreed to support this initiative and the NJSOP Find-A-Doc tool will be publicized as the means through which interested Girl Scouts can locate a near by optometrist.
