Help Needed - Contact Your Friends and Family in Florida

Help Needed - Contact Your Friends and Family in Florida

 

Our ophthalmology friends in Florida need Ohio's help.
Optometrists are still pushing hard for the Florida Legislature to grant them the ability to perform surgery and grant them prescribing privileges for nearly all medications. This Thursday, the House Health and Human Services Committee is scheduled to hear HB 1037 which would dramatically increase optometric scope of practice in one of the most populated states in the country.
We all have family and friends in Florida we can call and email and help make a difference. Your colleagues from Florida are asking us and every other state if we can reach out to our friends and family in Florida and ask them to contact their local legislator to vote against HB 1037. Simply forward the Voter Voice link below to anyone you know in Florida.

All the friend needs to do is click on the link and they will be able to send a customized message to their local representative. Please take action today as the hearing is Thursday. Thanks in advance for helping protect the profession. As always, contact the OOS office if you have any questions.
