The Optical Women's Association Hosts One Event at Vision Expo West! The annual Thursday Connection Series luncheon was back in-person with special guest, Dr. Connie Mariano, author of The White House Doctor. In spite of continuing pandemic restrictions, attendees were excited to see each other face to face once more!

The White House Doctor, one of OWA's 2021 business book selections, recounts Dr. Mariano's nine years of serving under three sitting presidents. She participated in world headline-making news events and travelled all over the world, caring for dignitaries and members of the First Family.

Dr. Mariano has been the first in the following notable achievements:

After leaving the White House in 2001, Dr. Mariano became a consultant in the Executive Health Program at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale from July 2001 to October 2005. In November 2005, Dr. Mariano founded the Center for Executive Medicine, a medical concierge practice which provides presidential-quality medical care to CEOs and their families.
