Optometry student gets clinic coat at NSU

— Jennifer Harris, daughter of Berry and Beverly Harris of Muskogee, recently participated in the White Coat Ceremony at Northeastern State University Oklahoma College of Optometry.

The White Coat Ceremony is held in recognition of the students’ progression in NSU’s four-year optometric education from classroom to clinic, from didactic studies to clinical care.

The presentation of the clinical coat officially welcomes the students into their clinical education.

The coats, which are embroidered with each student’s name, were presented to the students by two of their senior faculty members, Latricia Pack, O.D., and Jeff Miller, O.D.

Harris will receive her bachelor’s degree in vision science in May and is expected to graduate with a Doctor of Optometry degree in May 2015.
