From The University of Houston College of Optometry
Amid the chaos of the global coronavirus pandemic with self-distancing, business and school shutdowns and "shelter-in-place" announcements, one UH College of Optometry family is working hard to make the best of the situation, by being flexible, sharing responsibilities and helping others.
Easy Anyama, 25, has proven he can excel in any arena – whether it be a football field, optometry school or a highly competitive application process..
Anyama, a first-year student at the University of Houston College of Optometry, is one of only three students nationally to be selected for a prestigious summer internship with Essilor of America Inc., the leading manufacturer of optical lenses in the U.S. and a subsidiary of Paris-based Essilor International.
Muriel Martinez, O.D. ’13, FAAO, clinical assistant professor at the University of HoustonCollege of Optometry, can add a new title to her long list of titles – “Ambassador of Optometry.”
In 2018, she was one of three doctors of optometry from around the country chosen to represent the “Optometry Gives Me Life” campaign run by the Association of Schools and Colleges of Optometry. Now, Martinez is gearing up to share her love and knowledge for her chosen career with high school students.
ASCO is participating in a Cue Career Live Stream panel and asked Martinez to be one of three panelists. This is a free event and 12 high schools from across the nation have signed up to participate in the live session. The panelists will share insights about optometry and answer questions.
