3 UH optometry educators earn top honors at eye care convention
Date:3/19/2013

HOUSTON, March 19, 2013 The University of Houston College of Optometry (UHCO) was in the spotlight with three of its educators recently taking top honors from the Texas Optometric Association (TOA).

At the association's 113th annual convention, Kevin Gee, O.D., assumed the presidency of the organization, Nancy George, O.D., received the William D. Pittman Leadership Award and Pat Segu, O.D., was awarded 2013 Educator of the Year. All three are UHCO graduates now on faculty.

Gee, a 2002 graduate, is an assistant clinical professor and serves as director of the University Eye Institute's Sports Vision Performance Center. A nationally renowned lecturer in sports vision, Gee served in numerous positions within TOA before becoming the association's 2013-14 president. He also has a successful private practice in Missouri City, Texas, and serves as the vision consultant for the Houston Astros.

George, a 1981 graduate, is a clinical associate professor and serves as the director of UHCO's La Nueva Casa de Amigos Eye Clinic. This neighborhood-based satellite health care clinic provides eye and vision care at reduced cost to thousands within the Houston community. George has been involved in Houston and statewide politics most of her adult life, earning her the Pittman award, named for a longtime advocacy leader in the TOA.

Segu, a 1992 graduate and clinical associate professor, is director of the Good Neighbor Eye Clinic, an outreach program that also serves as a training arena for fourth-year optometry students. Segu received the TOA Educator of the Year award for her diligence and commitment to both the profession and her students. She is a fellow of the American Academy of Optometry, serves on the advisory board of the Eye Care for Kids Foundation and is a member of Prevent Blindness Texas' Houston branch.
