• Register Today: Mid-Year Forum April 10-13, 2019

    The Mid-Year Forum, celebrating its 27th year in 2019.

    The Mid-Year Forum is one of the Academy’s most significant yearly meetings, bringing the ophthalmology community together to implement the highest quality of care for patients through politics, policy, and practice management. Mid-Year Forum 2019 takes place April 10-13 in Washington, D.C., and is an ideal opportunity to directly advocate for your profession, learn about health care policy changes that will impact how you practice, and develop strategies to implement new programs in your patient-care approach.

    Congressional Advocacy Day—meet legislators at their place of business. On April 11, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., attend Academy-facilitated meetings with your members of Congress and their staff to advocate for your patients and the profession of ophthalmology. The Academy will brief you on talking points during a dinner briefing on April 10.

    Academy Council meeting. Beginning the afternoon of April 12 and continuing through the next day, unite with your colleagues from ophthalmic subspecialty and state societies to discuss issues facing our profession. This is also an opportunity to advise the Board of Trustees on what you view as the highest priorities for the organization.
