Mission: Medical research in ocular surface treatments
Programs: During 2017 the ocular surface research and education foundation supported the travel and hotel expenses of whitney (hethorn) testa where she attended the arvo and aao conferences. Whitney was a research associate involved in clinical work and data analysis. Her work led to the publication of two papers in the peer reviewed literature (british journal of ophthalmology and cornea). She also displayed and discussed her work at the 2017 arvo and aao meetings with poster presentations on growth of meibomian gland tissue.
