Dr. Patricia Hollingsworth-Cecconi, of Central Kentucky Optometric Associates at 310 W. High Street in Lebanon, was one of the first optometrists in the nation to become board certified by the American Board of Optometry (ABO). Dr. Hollingsworth-Cecconi passed the ABO’s Board Certification Examination administered in Nov.-Dec. 2011.
To attain this honor, Dr. Hollingsworth-Cecconi completed an accredited residency or a series of rigorous post-graduate activities. She then passed a challenging computer based examination on issues spanning the scope of practice of optometry.
Dr. Hollingsworth-Cecconi has enrolled in the ABO’s Maintenance of Certification program. The 10-year maintenance of certification process is designed to allow the doctor of optometry to demonstrate that she is dedicated to keeping current in the field of optometry and delivering quality patient care.
“We extend congratulations to the group of optometrists who have taken the first step in demonstrating their commitment to lifelong learning,” said Paul C. Ajamian, O.D., ABO chairman of the board.
