YORI seeks to provide opportunities for younger practitioners to connect and network, collectively share and embrace present issues facing young OD's and optometry as a profession.  YORI is a great vehicle to start getting involved in the RIOA.

Our initial efforts will be focused on hosting social events in different regions throughout the state.  Please visit this page often and be on the lookout for future YORI events. 

Together we can accomplish great things!
