The NOA Conference with the theme “BETTER EYE HEALTH – THE RESPONSIBILITY OF ALL” started on a good note with the Chairman of the organising committee Dr. Nwoko Michael calling on the Executive Governor of Edo State with his entourage to declare the National conference/AGM open on 5th July, 2017.
On the 6th and 7th July were wonderful scientific sections, while the closing on the 8th July came with gala night/award where three outstanding Optometrists where decorated with PRESTIGIOUS NOA FELLOWSHIP AWARD, they are ;
Dr.Ogechi Nwokedi(Chairman NOA Lagos chapter)

Aside from the award, the Speaker and his deputy were present, there and then he approved to enshrine Optometry in the list of primary health profession in Edo State. Kudos to the able leadership of the state chairman DR. NWOKO MICHEAL. It was a wonderful outing in Edo State.
