The 2016 Frans Oosterhof Travel Grant Awarded to Acheampong Oppong

The 2016 Optical Foundation Frans Oosterhof Travel Grant was awarded to Acheampong Oppong, who attended the Tear Film and Ocular Surface Conference in Montpellier, France. Acheampong is a student at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology. He will be graduating in summer 2017 and aspires to enter private optometric practice. “I believe being in a private practice will give me the independence to ensure that all my patients get the time and quality of care that they deserve at a price they can afford, which is mostly not the case in many health centers in my home country”, is what Acheampong wrote.

He had a very positive and educative experience at the TFOS Conference – as outlined in his letter.
