LTC Instructor Earns State Honor

CLEVELAND - LTC Ophthalmic Medical Assistant program instructor Dr. Corinne Beiersdorf Wicklund, who also practices optometry in Howards Grove, was presented with the Young Optometrist of the Year Award on September 26, 2015 at the Wisconsin Optometric Association (WOA) Convention and Annual Meeting at the Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells, WI. This award is presented to one outstanding doctor each year that has been in practice for less than 10 years. The award recognizes the doctor's exceptional service to optometry, dedication to the vision and eye health welfare of the public, and service to the community. 

Dr. Beiersdorf Wicklund has been a full time faculty member in charge of developing the Ophthalmic Medical Assistant program at Lakeshore Technical College since 2011. In her role as lead faculty, Dr. Beiersdorf Wicklund interacts with not only students and potential students, but also with professionals from the many disciplines within the entire health care field.

 Dr. Beiersdorf Wicklund began practicing optometry at Kisiolek Eye Center in Howards Grove shortly after her graduation from the Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, TN in 2006, and she continues to practice today. She also serves as a volunteer provider for the WOA's VISION USA - The Wisconsin Project program which provides no cost eye exams to school age children who qualify.  Her involvement in community outreach groups such as the Salvation Army, Lions Club, and local service organizations benefits those less fortunate and sets an example for all optometrists of what it means to give back.
