Specsavers co-founder Doug Perkins will make a special guest appearance at the beginning of this week’s SCC Online Series, using video to announce the winners of his namesake award, the Doug Perkins Medal, for Australia and New Zealand for 2020.
The 2020 Doug Perkins Medal finalists were named earlier this month during the second SCC Online live event.
This will be the first time in the three-year history of the prestigious awards, that the Specsavers co-founder has been involved in announcing the winners.
The awards recognise consistently high standards of clinical excellence and patient care with finalists and winners identified via the network’s Professional Benchmarking Initiative
Following Doug’s video presentation, SCC Online will present the fifth installment of its live webinar series, featuring presentations by leading ophthalmologists, Dr Lana Del Porto and Dr Caroline Catt who will lead discussions on paediatric optometry, including on managing strabismus in children and assessment of the pediatric optic disc.
