Alumni Association President's Message

Charles Luu

Our College is becoming a University and with it we'll be embracing the value brought to the health care professions of all of our alumni. Please note the alumni story Making an Impact, highlighting the impact of the work of two of our graduates from the Optometric Tech program. While we're now addressing the needs of alumni who provide all aspects of vision care, soon the Association will be welcoming the future alumni of the School of Physician Assistant Studies. It's a very exciting time! 

- Charles Luu, O.D., '86, Alumni Association President, 2011-2013
