Dr. Vladimir Yevseyenkov, Assistant Professor at Midwestern University Arizona College of Optometry and the Midwestern University Eye Institute, was invited to participate in a White House Conference on Aging (WHCOA) regional forum, which was held in Phoenix on March 31.

The WHCOA has been held once a decade since 1961 and is designed to help chart the course of aging policy. The 2015 conference, to be held in Washington, D.C., later this year, is focusing on four areas: ensuring retirement security; promoting healthy aging; providing long-term services and supports; and protecting older Americans from financial exploitation, abuse and neglect.

Dr. Yevseyenkov is heavily involved in research and treatments for low vision and vision rehabilitation for the elderly population.
