In collaboration with the Association of Practice Management Educators (APME) and Student Optometric Leadership Network (SOLN), the challenge was designed for optometry students interested in a path to private practice ownership. Sveinson was awarded a $10,000 scholarship, as well as a travel grant to the annual SOLN conference.
