Transcript Continued from Pg. 126 Sight for Sore eyes Naquanna Driver Program, also known as TEXOCOP. TEXOCOP is a recruitment of educationally disadvantaged health professions students. "The purpose of TEXOCOP is to increase opportunities for disadvantaged students who enter our program to become optometrists," Peek said. "We bring 20 students, from around the state and the country, into our college for a very intense optometry curriculum preparatory course." TEXOCOP was given new federal funding in September 1997. It is 3-year funding for the summer enrichment program. UHCO is in the process of installing lactation equipment in the women's restrooms. Peek said they are sure that they are the only college making these facilities available for female students. "Our student population is between 60 and 70 percent female," Peek said. "We're getting several pregnant women and women who are nursing babies. We're remodeling the restrooms. We've already talked to some experts and hopefully, in the future, we'll have these facilities for our nursing mothers." Peek believes these changes will make college life somewhat easier for their student mothers. "We're a very female-friendly college," Peek said. Dr. Liz Westin, assistant professor of optometry, teaches her students about the eye on the computer. With new technology, optometrists are able to look at an eye through a computer screen.
