To health care professionals around the world Minnesota is known as an industry leader. But who leads within Minnesota? Minnesota Business magazine answers that question at the Leaders in Health Care Awards by honoring the elite of Minnesota’s health care professionals.
This year Dr Mary Gregory has been nominated for the Health Care Practitioner Award. This recognition is given to an individual who has operated at an exceptional level in their field of practice.
Dr. Gregory, co-owner of Uptown Eye Care and owner of Omni Vision and Learning Center, both located in Monticello, MN, was nominated for her passion and energy in promoting healthy vision development for children.
Her passion has led her to be a leading participant in the InfantSEE® public health program that is designed to ensure that vision care becomes an integral part of infant wellness by providing eye health evaluations for children between the ages of 8-12 months of age at no cost. Dr Gregory was recognized for her efforts with the presentation of the David E. Sullens InfantSee Award by the American Optometric Association in June of 2014. She also conducts monthly workshops to educate parents and teachers on vision related learning problems. Dr. Gregory’s dedication to ensuring that children have the visual skills essential to function optimally in all areas of life has benefited hundreds of children in her community.
The Minnesota Business magazine’s expert panel of judges selected three finalists for each of 14 categories of the health care field. All the health care professionals and companies nominated will be featured in the November issue of Minnesota Business.
The nominees will be honored and winners revealed at a celebratory event held at the Minneapolis Marriot City Center in downtown Minneapolis on Oct. 29, 2014.
