We are pleased to announce that Kelly K. Nichols, O.D., MPH, Ph.D., FAAO one of the world's leading vision scientists in the area of dry eye disease, will be the next dean of the School of Optometry. She will assume that role on June 25th. In December, the UAB School of Optometry hosted five finalists in the Dean Search on campus to meet with administrators and faculty, and to speak publicly at the school. Upon completion of the five visits, the Search Committee met and narrowed the list to three, giving those three names, unranked, to Provost Linda Lucas for a decision. Many thanks to all who took part in this search, from participating on the Search Committee, to coordinating events, to giving opinions to committee members! We are all involved in the process, as well as in the results. And a special thanks to Dr. Linda Lucas for all of her time spent on our behalf.
