The next NHOA CE meeting is coming up soon, and we have a very interesting and
exciting program planned!
The meeting is scheduled for Sunday, August 5, at the Grappone Conference Center
in Concord. The Grappone Center is right off I-93 (take exit 15-W) and is
attached to the Courtyard by Marriott.
Registration for the meeting is now open. See the schedule below, and then drop

We plan on seven hours of Category 1 CE, with two of the hours on glaucoma.
Our confirmed lecturers are Joseph Stamm, OD, Jami Parsons Malloy, OD, and
Bridget Hendricks,OD (all from MCPHS), and Tony Cavallerano, OD, from NECO.
(Please note that NHOA no longer registers our meetings as “COPE Events” or
requires that lecturers obtain COPE approval for their lectures. However, you
can go to the ARBO/COPE website (www.arbo.org)
and determine if the courses are COPE-approved.)
Our corporate supporters for this meeting are Genzyme, Ophthalmic Instrument
Company, Johnson & Johnson, and Essilor, and we are grateful for their support!

HANDOUTS: As in the past, lecture handouts will be available online for
download about a week before the meeting. You can print them out, or bring your
laptop or tablet to the meeting (there will be free Wi-Fi access in the meeting
room.) There are also electrical outlets available if you need to recharge your
device during the day. You will receive an email from NHOA notifying you when
the handouts are available for downloading or printing. Alternatively, you may
request printed handouts as we have done before. To offset the rising cost of
printing and paper, there will be a charge of $20 if you want a set of printed

registration has gone through, but you will NOT receive a separate email. You
are also welcome to come to the meeting and register on-site, but there will be
