OVERVIEW

Dr. Foster began his formal education at Ricks College (Now BYU-Idaho) in Rexburg Idaho, where he was on the Basketball team and was named the 2000 Ricks College Man of the Year for his service in the Rexburg community.

While at BYU, he was elected Student Body President of the 30,000+ Student University. After graduation he was also a motivational speaker for the National Guard against drug abuse, and started the process for Optometry School. While in Optometry School, Dr. Foster continued to be a leader in the Clinic and throughout Philadelphia. He graduated from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry at Salus University in 2009 with Clinical honors and testified on Washington to the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to end the exclusion of optometrists from the NHSC student loan repayment program so they would actively recruit OD's to serve in areas where access to eye and vision care professionals is severely limited or unavailable. He performed Internships in Ocular Disease at The Veteran's Hospital in Fayetteville, NC, Pediatric Care, Low Vision, Retinal Disease, and Primary Care at the Pennsylvania College of Optometry in Philadelphia, PA.
