The POA honors Senator Don White with award

Each year, the POA honors a legislator who has proved him- or herself as a worthy friend of optometry. The POA's 2015 Distinguished Legislator Award was given to Senator Don White for his support and involvement with the introduction of important vision benefits bills, and advocacy efforts for patients and providers in the western Pennsylvania healthcare market.
Senator White had a previous engagement that prohibited his presence at the POA's annual Awards Ceremony during Congress. Members of the POA's staff and Third Party Center went to the Capitol and presented Senator White with his plaque.
