The Optical Foundation (TOF) each year sponsors two students as part of the Frans Oosterhof Travel Grant Program to attend an international conference. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most conferences have been cancelled or are going virtual in 2020. Unfortunately, the 2020 Netherlands Contact Lens Congress (NCC) was postponed to 2022, and as a result, the 2020 TOF Frans Oosterhof Travel Grant award winners (Asantewa MacCarthy (UCC) and Isaiah Osei Duah Junior (KNUST)) are not able to travel internationally. As an alternative, TOF would like the award winners to attend the virtual 2020 American Academy of Optometry virtual conference (7th – 22nd October 2020) and run an event on zoom to recognize the award winners.
CONGRATULATIONS TO AWARD WINNERS
