UIWRSO Mourns the Passing of Dr. Mervyn Bloom

We are blessed with many wonderful people at RSO who make our lives better. Unfortunately, there are times when we lose a member of our community and feel a great loss. On November 29, we lost one of the best optometrists, teachers and human beings many of us have ever known. Dr. Mervyn Bloom was a truly caring, compassionate and humble man. Dr. Bloom was a valued faculty member who went through life with an attitude of gratitude. Whenever you spoke with him, you felt his joy of life and had a better day because of the conversation. Dr. Bloom had an immeasurable impact on his students and the UIWRSO family, and he will be greatly missed. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers. 

As a reminder, a scholarship in Dr. Bloom's name has been set up through the Rosenberg School of Optometry. 

Rest in peace Dr. Bloom.
