ASC industry leader Dr. Maria Scott to help cataract surgeons combine charity with their practices: 5 notes

Maria C. Scott, MD, will participate in the American Academy of Ophthalmology Leadership Develop Program for 2017, and will work to further various charitable initiatives.

Here are five notes:

1. Dr. Scott currently is creating an operating manual aiming to help cataract surgeons fuse Operation Sight charitable work with their practices and ASCs. Operation Sight is the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery Foundation's U.S.-based charitable cataract surgery program.

2. She is the vice president of the Outpatient Ophthalmic Surgery Society and represents the ophthalmic ASC community as an AAO councilor.

3. The program added 20 participants, including Dr. Scott, for its 2017 program. Dr. Scott will join other members in attending AAO leadership sessions in San Francisco.

4. She earned her medical degree from Philadelphia-based Jefferson Medical College.

5. Dr. Scott said, "With the increasing complexity and changing landscape of healthcare, now more than ever it is critical for leaders to inspire their team and achieve their collective, as well as individual, goals. I am particularly excited about this program because it will give me the opportunity to further enhance my leadership skills, which will greatly benefit my role as vice president of OOSS."
