Anson Wilder Manning

Burke and Julia had their second baby boy last Thursday night. There's something about his first name that seems to just roll right off my tongue.

#7 - AOA-PAC

Number 7 reason why I love being out here in Columbus is AOA-PAC. Last year I did this, and this year was even better, because I got to go on some Utah visits (Senator Hatch, and Congressman Chaffetz).

We were pushing HR bills 1219 and 1195 to put optometrists on equal grounds with the other primary health care doctors on medicaid (like we already are on medicare), and to include optometrists on the National Health Services Corps bill so that we can get student loan forgiveness for providing eye care to underserved populations. Call me if you want an explanation of all this.

Or you can watch this video... maybe it will help. See if you can find me at time 5:10 of the video. I'm wearing a purple shirt and a blue lanyard.

Finally catching up on old blog posts from the family, and realizing that many of you may not be aware that certain serious eye problems can be detected within the first year of life. InfantSEE is a program where optometrists provide FREE eye exams to children ages 6 months - 1 year. Call your optometrist and ask if they are an InfantSEE doctor, or go to InfantSEE to find a participating optometrist.

Cheesy, but truthful video below:
