HEI Participates in Annual AAO and ASOPRS Meetings


In October, faculty and residents of the University of Tennessee Hamilton Eye Institute (UTHEI) traveled to Chicago to participate in the annual meetings of the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) and the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS). Over 25,000 physicians and health professionals attend these meetings each year to present new research, transfer skills, and share knowledge. This year's AAO meeting was also their first joint meeting with the Middle East Africa Council of Ophthalmology (MEACO).

Faculty members, residents, and research staff representing the UTHEI attended these events, collectively participating in 18 invited lectures and instructional courses, and presenting 5 scientific posters. Several faculty members also served on special committees and moderated events at both meetings. We congratulate our faculty, residents, and research staff on their successful participation and high level of involvement in this year's AAO and ASOPRS meetings.
