UMSL alumnus Lt. Col. Christopher Putnam, OD, PhD, FAAO (PhD, Vision Science, ’14) presented an informative lecture on April 11, 2021, to open up this year’s Nutrition and the Eye Symposium. The symposium, now in its 13th year, is co-sponsored by the Ocular Wellness and Nutrition Society. Dr. Putnam provided attendees with findings and guidance from multiple studies on the topics of laser damage, neurodegenerative disorders, retinal imaging, and ocular nutraceuticals. At the beginning of the lecture, Dr. Putnam shared that he would be leaving the next day on a year-long deployment overseas with the Air Force. We thank Dr. Putnam for his service and for spending his last afternoon at home with UMSL!
There is still time to register for the remaining lectures: April 14, 21, 28. Please visit our site for information.
