Dr. Scott MundleDr. Scott Mundle, of the Henderson Vision Centre in Winnipeg, became president-elect of the World Council of Optometry. He will take office in 2017 after the term of the new president, Uduak Udom of Nigeria. The announcement was made at the World Congress of Optometry in Medellin, Colombia.
