• Save the Date: Mid-Year Forum April 22-25, 2020.

    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 2020 takes place April 22-25 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 23, from 8 a.m. to 3 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 22.

    Academy Council meeting. Beginning the afternoon of April 24 and continuing through the next day, unite with your colleagues from ophthalmic subspecialty and state societies to discuss issues facing our profession.
