On July 13-14, 2022, Prevent Blindness will host the 11th annual Focus on Eye Health National Summit as a FREE virtual interactive event. The event will take place over two days via a virtual platform that offers simultaneous access to expert presentations; a dedicated exhibitor hall; educational materials, videos, and toolkits; on-demand educational content; and in-platform opportunities for networking and collaboration.
The 2022 Focus on Eye Health National Summit will kick-off July 13, with an opening discussion from Frank Bruni, a New York Times journalist and author. Mr. Bruni will share his personal experience with vision loss and how it has given him insight into the human experience- as detailed in his New York Times bestseller, Beauty of Dusk: On Vision Lost and Found.
Additional presentations at the Focus on Eye Health National Summit on July 13th will include:
As part of the Year of Children’s Vision at Prevent Blindness, the second day of the Summit (July 14) will feature the Forum on Children’s Vision, addressing how children’s vision data is important along with the people it represents; how the education system can play an important role in systems of eye care in school-aged children; and how to develop equitable pediatric research life cycles that are more inclusive of children and families. In addition, patient and parent perspectives will be shared to demonstrate their lived experiences. The day will close with a presentation from Dr. Amelie Ramirez who will share strategies to promote health and wellness among the Latino population.
