Professor Dr Mo Jalie [OT 1957], has been awarded an honorary doctorate by The University of Ulster in recognition of his services to optometry.

Mo has been a visiting Professor to the University since 1998 and has held a number of key positions, including the first chairman of the Faculty of Dispensing Opticians, the first chairman of the Academic Committee of the Association of British Dispensing Opticians and a member of the GOC Overseas Qualifications Committee.

Commenting on his Doctorate, Mo said: “It is strange to be rewarded for doing nothing more than researching the area that you love!”
