Nordic Naturals, the leader in clinical omega-3 nutrition, will host “Omega-3 Fish Oil: The Ideal Complement to the Optometric Practice,” a lecture by Dr. Millicent Knight, O.D., at the International Vision Expo and Conference in Las Vegas Sept. 5-8.
Dr. Knight, who has served on the National Advisory Council of the National Eye Institutes, will speak on Thursday, September 6th from 2:45–3:45 p.m. in Room 902 at the Venetian Hotel. CE credit is available.
Participants will learn how to optimize patient care through omega-3 applications. Dr. Knight will also discuss the omega-3 deficiency epidemic in the United States, and the critical role essential fatty acids play in eye health.
