The Wallace Fox Foundation Awards Grant

The Wallace Fox Foundation has awarded the Optometric Center of New York (OCNY) a $5,000 grant for general operating support.  This is the first grant from the foundation. 

The generosity of The Wallace Fox Foundation will enable the SUNY College of Optometry to continue to provide high quality eye and vision care to the most vulnerable New Yorkers; play a key role in training the next generation of knowledgeable and compassionate eye care providers; and help advance the body of research knowledge in the field, facilitating ‘lab to bedside’ collaborations between basic and clinical research scientists.

“We are pleased to partner with The Wallace Fox Foundation to provide leadership in patient care, education and research,” said Dr. David A. Heath, College President..

The Optometric Center of New York is the allied and endowing foundation of the State University of New York, State College of Optometry.
