(PRESS RELEASE) Eugene, OR – Valley Contax, Inc, in partnership with Contamac US, announces the winner of its student travel grant. The grant has been awarded to Derek Bryant, a Third Year student at Northeastern State University in Oklahoma. Derek was selected from several applicants, all of whom submitted a short essay about the teacher who made the most significant impact on them and why. Derek will use his travel grant to join fellow optometry students and attendees at Academy 2023 in New Orleans.

“This year’s entry is a great example of how our educators teach more than just skills related to optometry,” said Dr. Adeline Bauer, Professional Relations. “They also teach us how to be compassionate, understanding and care for the patient as a whole.”
