New ICO Alumni Council Members Elected

Congratulations to Jennifer Harthan, OD ’06, FAAO, FSLS and Philip Hasler, OD ’86, Colonel USAF (retired), for their election to the ICO Alumni Council. 

Dr. Harthan became a full-time faculty member at ICO after completing her residency in Cornea and Contact Lenses in 2007. She is currently a professor and serves as Chief of the Cornea Center for Clinical Excellence in the Illinois Eye Institute. Dr. Harthan will serve as the Alumni Council's Faculty Representative, replacing Sandra Block, OD '81, MEd, MPH, FAAO, FCOVD, who recently retired from ICO. Dr. Harthan's long history as a faculty member and clinician will provide a unique perspective to the Alumni Council, along with a wealth of knowledge about ICO/IEI and a broad network of industry relationships.

Dr. Hasler, of Reedsburg, Wisconsin, is a retired Colonel in the Wisconsin Air National Guard. Currently, he practices at Davis Duehr Dean of the SSM/Dean Health System, a nationally recognized multi-specialty, comprehensive and integrated eye service network with 19 locations in southern Wisconsin. Dr. Hasler is honored to continue the legacy of his father, James Hasler, OD ’49, who also served on the Alumni Council. He is especially proud that his daughter Rachel Hasler, OD ’17, and son Nicholas Hasler ’23, are following in his footsteps as the next generation of ICO alumni. 

Welcome to the Alumni Council, Drs. Harthan and Hasler!
