President’s Message

Women are positioned to make huge contributions to our core duties in patient care, education and research.  Our organization Women in ophthalmology is the perfect forum to provide the professional development, the carrier advancement, and the interactive networking to advance our progress and fulfill our duties. With the focus on learning the rapidly advancing science and the acquisition of professional skills, Women in Ophthalmology convenes its annual meeting this year in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida on August 16th, 2018. The scientific program will include cutting-edge topic on ophthalmology, leadership development training, keynote lectures and speaker training.  In addition to scientific papers, poster presentations, and wetlabs.

Please keep in mind that our organization and our meetings have achieved significant global outreach and important international relationships.  I urge you to take advantage of the early bird registration ending on June 15th 2018.  I hope you will spread the word about our organization, continue to support our women in ophthalmology and encourage new members to join.

Kind regards,
Lama A. Al-Aswad, MD, MPH
President, Women in Ophthalmology
