Dr. Johnson attended the American Academy of Ophthalmology Mid-Year Forum in Washington, DC, from April 17-21, 2018. The Forum features a day of advocacy, with the opportunity to meet with Colorado’s U.S. Senators (Bennet/Gardner) and Representatives (DeGette). This year the focus was on regulatory relief and more efficient use of EHR to meet quality measures. Dr. Johnson is pictured with AAO Board Member Sanjay Goel, MD, and Alabama State Society President Wonsuck Kim, DO. All three doctors were classmates in the AAO Leadership Development Program, Class of 2003.
Dr. Johnson sponsored the CRA team at the Foresight Golf Tournament at the beautiful Sanctuary Golf Course, on May 31, 2018. This annual charity event benefits the Anchor Center for the Blind located in Stapleton. Pictured with Dr. Johnson are Brian Byrd, GolfTec instructor, and general ophthalmologist, Gary Jamell, MD. Not pictured (behind the camera) is fourth team member Theresa Johnson, who salvaged many holes with 200-yard drives from the ladies tee, right down the middle. The team shot even par, but more importantly helped raise money for a worthy cause while having a great time!
On April 20th-21st, Colorado Retina Associates hosted US Retina Group’s annual meeting. This meeting brings Retina practices together from all over the country to share best practice in all areas of their businesses. Staying active in learning about new ways for our practice to function and in turn better our patient’s experience is top priority for us.
At recent TCPi Collaborative Learning Session in Golden, CRA was awarded the first Health Quality Leader award!

Also, after Dr. Alan Kimura spoke, he was told by TCPi that his nomination to the TCPi National Faculty is going to be approved. Congratulations to him as well!
