Date: July 15, 2020

Location: National Press Club, Washington, D.C.


On Wednesday, July 15th, 2020, Prevent Blindness will host the 9th Annual Focus on Eye Health National Summit at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. 

Focus On Eye Health National Summit

The Focus on Eye Health National Summit elevates the national dialogue among diverse stakeholder groups around vision and significant population health issues such as surveillance, equity, prevention messaging, service integration, program development, and dissemination of best practices. Summit participants will have the opportunity to develop new collaborations, integrate new vision health messages and procedures into their outreach, and improve lines of communication with internal and external partners. 

2020 Agenda: While still under development, 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.

Expected attendees include patient advocates, clinicians and researchers, community-based and advocacy organizations, national vision and eye health organizations, government agencies, and legislative staff. We will also host a virtual live-feed teleconference to coincide with the event, allowing for anyone interested to join in from across the country.
