NEW YORK – To further its goal of educating independent, private eye care practice owners and managers, Independent Strong has named Jennifer L. Stewart, OD, as its Professional Editor. With experience in academia and in private practice, Dr. Stewart has been a proponent of private independent practice optometry and opticianry her entire career. She will be responsible for directing the vision and mission of the overall website, planning the content written for each issue by practicing eye care professionals in the field, and working alongside the in-house editorial team of Editor-in-Chief John Sailer and Managing Editor Kristen Dalli. Dr. Stewart will succeed Founding Professional Editor, Mark Wright, OD, FCOVD, who Independent Strong thanks for his contributions to launching this publication.
Review of Optometric Business launched the Independent Strong website earlier this year to help private practice optometry and opticianry prosper now and in the future. Independent Strong publishes fresh business and practice advisory information from industry experts and partners on a regular basis to help private practitioners make their independent practice as successful and valuable as possible. Subscribers to Independent Strong are notified regularly when new articles are posted to reinforce their knowledge around managing their practice and caring for their patients.
“Both new and established independent eye care practices are already benefiting from the step-by-step guidance Independent Strong provides to help practitioners build a systematic structure that will serve as their business foundation for years to come,” said Independent Strong Editor-in-Chief John Sailer. “With Dr. Stewart joining the Independent Strong team, we are confident her experience and contacts will further enhance Independent Strong’s impact, providing best practice advice on a variety of topics categorized under practice management, practice growth strategies, and ophthalmic products.”
“As someone who has spent their entire career in private practice, I am honored and excited to be part of the team at Independent Strong,” said Dr. Stewart. “I am passionate about helping optometrists and opticians be successful in their businesses, and I feel the future is brighter than ever for independents to thrive.”
