Hey there 20/20 Community. Welcome to this episode of 20/20 Money! My guest on today’s show is Dr. Justin Manning. I know ODs around the country are going through a lot right now as we all grapple with the disruption caused by COVID-19. I wanted to have Justin back on the show because I thought he’d bring a unique perspective to the show, as he’s the only OD I know that also has their MPH (Masters Degree in Public Health).

During our conversation we talk about various examples and ways in which we’ve both witnessed ODs making the best out of a bad set of circumstances. We talk about what he’s experienced in his role as an Executive Vice President with Healthy Eyes Advantage and the conversations he’s had with ODs around the country, how this disruption is forcing innovation in practices, including the implementation of telemedicine services, and how ODs can take an important role in the healthcare network by educating as many people as possible about all the different medical-based ways in which ODs can serve patients, thus diverting a would-be ER or PCP visit with a call to an OD. We wrap up the conversation talking about the importance of fear setting when dealing with moments of change and discomfort in life and ways in which ODs can work ON their professional self and/or practice during this setback.
