In introducing this year’s   Lighthouse Award recipient Alan Lindy  at the 13th annual Looking Out for Kids (LOFK) charity event Nov. 2 in Philadelphia, Salus University’s  Susan Oleszewski, OD ’76, MA , shared a quotation from Pope Francis: “A population that does not take care of the elderly and of children and the young has no future, because it abuses both its memory and its promises.”

In addition to a competitive four-year residential program, Salus University’s  Osborne College of Audiology (OCA)  is now offering a  three-year track to interested and qualified students. The three-year track provides students the opportunity to complete all of the same audiology degree requirements in an accelerated 36-month, year-round, campus-based program that allows them to enter the workforce one year prior to the four-year track students.

They traveled long distances and slept overnight in their cars. It was cold, dark and it was a long wait. But when the doors of an elementary school in rural Warsaw, Virginia, opened at 6 a.m. the next day, they were getting help from hundreds of volunteers – including 14 third-year Doctor of Optometry students from Salus University, Pennsylvania College of Optometry (PCO) – with eye exams that they rarely get.

This #GivingTuesday , we have a special mission for you - help Looking Out for Kids and its Big Red Bus!


The Big Red Bus plays an integral part in the success of the Looking Out For Kids program, making it possible to bring healthcare services to school districts in the Philadelphia region and provide vision and hearing services to thousands of children in need.

Now 18 years old, the Big Red Bus has become unreliable, breaking down on occasion, causing it to be in critical need of updating. With school visits scheduled through the end of the 2019-2020 academic year, and with many school districts calling for additional assistance, we need your help!

Share Your  #Salus100Stories
As Salus/PCO celebrates 100 years in 2019, what are your hopes for the college in the next 100 years?

First of all, I hope that optometry and ophthalmology can work out their resistance in working together. PCO continues to be a part of that and make that happen. I hope optometry does not go to digital online eye exams. And, really having the right bedside manner. Optometry has come so far in the last 100 years!
