Ophthalmic Business Council
The Ophthalmic Business Council (OBC) provides Academy and ophthalmic industry leaders with opportunities to build relationships and collaborate on ways to improve patient care. Among the many benefits of OBC membership are its annual Fall Symposium and biennial Spring Symposium.
The Fall Symposium is held every September in conjunction with the Academy’s Board of Trustees meeting in San Diego. This highly interactive event features presentations from leaders in government, medicine and health policy, providing attendees with an ideal platform to exchange information and ideas.
The Spring Symposium is held every other year in Washington, D.C. It features experts from government agencies presenting updates on FDA, Medicare and reimbursement issues. As the speed of innovation and new knowledge in ophthalmology grows, this event has become increasingly valuable in providing helpful insights for bringing new technologies and procedures to patients. The next Spring Symposium will be held in April 2019.
The OBC provides a variety of prominent recognition opportunities for its members. Find more information on the OBC and how it can benefit your company, or contact:
