The Association of Regulatory Boards of Optometry has named Gregory Moore, a senior clinical instructor at the University of Pikeville College of Optometry, as its president.

“Dr. Moore’s selection as president of ARBO is a reflection of the quality and reputation of the faculty members we have assembled here at the Kentucky College of Optometry,” Kentucky College of Optometry founding dean and vice president of optometric education Andrew Buzzelli said. “Dr. Moore’s understanding of the direction of the optometric education for the future and his depth of clinical experience makes him well-suited to lead the organizational membership who are responsible for bringing qualified optometric physicians to the citizens of their individual states.”

Moore will serve a one-year term.

“We are in an unprecedented time of change in the U.S. regarding both healthcare economies with the evolving Affordable Healthcare Act and health care delivery systems offered through advancing technologies,” Moore said. “It is incumbent on all professions to ensure that these changes are vetted out so the public is protected from inferior or substandard care in the name of maximizing profits for payers or by being exposed to technologies that do not adequately deliver the care that is promised.”
