MOA Summer Convention – VIRTUAL OPTION for ODs
Don’t feel comfortable attending an in-person event yet? Sign up for our Virtual option June 17 – 19! All courses remain the same with slightly modified hours. A quiz will be required for each course with at least a 70% score to qualify for CE. The LIVE event will be run through ARBO/COPE. The VIRTUAL event will not be run through ARBO, although the hours will be approved through the MS State Board of Optometry. Virtual registration can be found at www.mseyes.com.

While participating in events held or sponsored by the Mississippi Optometric Association (MOA) social distancing must be practiced and face coverings worn at all times to reduce the risks of exposure to COVID-19. Because COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is spread mainly from person-to-person contact, MOA has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19. However, MOA cannot guarantee that its participants, volunteers, exhibitors, or others in attendance will not become infected with COVID-19.

A signed liability waiver and release of claims will be required from each registrant at the time of registration. Each registrant must sign their own waiver. MOA will not accept a waiver signed on behalf of another individual.
