New Chair of the Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Association

Nancy M. Mackowsky, OD, FCOVD, FNORA has been appointed as Chair of the Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Association, International (NORA) Fellowship Committee, succeeding Derrick Tong, OD, FAAO, FCOVD, FNORA, who will be stepping down from the position February 1, 2023.

Dr. Mackowsky is a graduate of the Pennsylvania College of Optometry at Salus University of Health Sciences. She is a fellow of both the College of Optometrists in Vision Development (COVD) and NORA. In 1995, she was one of the developers of The Center for Visual Learning for the corporate group, Doctors Vision Center. In 2010, she founded The Mackowsky Visual Learning and Rehabilitation Clinic in Raleigh, North Carolina and is the sole owner. Her practice is devoted solely to providing neuro- optometric rehabilitation and vision therapy to her patients. Dr. Mackowsky has served on the COVD International Certification and Examination Board and has been a member of the NORA Fellowship Committee for five years.

The NORA Fellowship program was developed for the membership of NORA to develop and support the highest level of clinical abilities and scientific knowledge in the field of Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation. This process leads to a Fellowship within NORA. It is not a certification process but rather a learning process to help the individual clinician develop deeper knowledge and understanding about Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation with a multi-disciplinary approach.

Jill Schultz, OD, FNORA
Shirley Blanc, OD, FNORA
Cathy Stern, OD, FNORA
Curt Baxstrom, OD, FNORA
Wid Blything, OD, MS, FAAO, FCOVD, FNAP

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Mackowsky and thanking Dr. Tong for his years of service as Chair.
