Effective January 1, Dr. Tom Quinn will join the GP Lens Institute in the part-time role of Associate Director. His responsibilities will include providing regular input into GPLI programs and resources, overseeing GPLI projects and committee activities including the new GPLI online educational journal, serve as Chair of the GPLI Leadership Advisory Board, and actively participating as a member of the GPLI Development Committee.
As one of the most respected leaders, educators, and speakers in specialty contact lenses, Dr. Quinn brings a wealth of knowledge, experience, and dedication to his new role. He joins Executive Director, Dr. Ed Bennett, and Development and Marketing Coordinator, Beth Anderzhon, as part of the GPLI team. And Dr. Bennett is excited about this: “As we have so many programs and resources currently in development, to have someone as well respected in the profession as Dr. Tom Quinn, not only helping to make these programs become a reality, but also having the innovativeness to help us establish our future direction and goals, is very rewarding. He is beloved by both students and residents via his GPLI, STAPLE, and other student programs, and is very well respected by Eye Care Professionals for his leadership, lectures, and publications.” And the GPLI is very consistent with Dr. Quinn’s career goals as he states: “I’ve dedicated my career to meeting the needs of patients requiring specialty contact lens care. I am excited to now be in a position to help others take advantage of the many benefits offered by two of the best tools we have at our disposal: gas permeable and custom soft contact lenses.”
