Prevent Blindness will host its fifth annual Focus on Eye Health National Summit, “Vision to Action—Collaborating Around a National Strategy” on July 13, 2016. The Summit will take place at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.
This year’s summit will focus on recommendations brought forth in a new Health and Medicine Division report by the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine Committee. The report is on public health approaches to reduce vision impairment and promote eye health.
Additionally, the event, which has become a venue for national dialogue around vision and public health issues, has also been a platform to release new public health information.
A virtual, live-feed teleconference will be hosted to coincide with the summit to allow anyone interested to join from across the country.
