On Wednesday, July 15th, 2020, Prevent Blindness will host the 9th Annual Focus on Eye Health National Summit as a virtual event. (Due to the current COVID-19 health crisis, this year’s event will be held as an online event only.)
The Focus on Eye Health National Summit has become a key annual event to elevate the national dialogue among diverse stakeholder groups around vision and significant public health issues such as equity, surveillance, access, prevention, service integration, and program development. The Summit allows its participants to develop new collaborations, integrate new vision health messages and procedures into their outreach, disseminate evidence-based best practices to support eye health, and improve lines of communication with internal and external partners. Our virtual event will offer these same opportunities through a unique, interactive platform.
2020 Agenda: The Summit will include a variety of presentations related to this year’s theme, “An Eye to the Future.” The agenda will recognize the importance of the year 2020 for vision – and look beyond this moment to the technologies, treatments, social impacts, and policies that will shape vision health in America in the coming decades.
The Focus on Eye Health National Summit welcomes a diverse range of participants, including patient advocates, community-based organizations, national vision and eye health organizations, health-care providers, senior- and child care professionals, government agency staff, legislative staff, and more.
