Hi! My name is Adam Glover. I’m a student from the WesternU College of Optometry (WUCO) Class of 2019. My favorite things in this world are optometry, floral prints, Southern California beaches, and Stephen Curry, who I’m 99% sure holds the evidence-based title “Greatest basketball player Of All Time”
When I’m not studying, you can catch me giving lunch-time campus tours to interviewees for a free Panera Bread sandwich or at the local LA Fitness raining down 3 pointers on the heads of my classmates Brandon Betts and Cody Alvarado. I love optometry for its opportunities to be creative in problem solving and to resolve chief complaints.
I look forward to seeing you all in Denver!
