Retina International Virtual Youth Conference 2020

The Retina International Youth Council invites you to our Virtual Conference on August 24th and 25th 2020 from 12:00 – 14:30 CET. We ask all members to encourage their young people to get connected, get informed and get engaged. If you are someone living with a retinal dystrophy, a friend or a family member of an affected individual, then we invite you to tune in and join us!

The Retina Youth Council has developed a programme featuring guest-speakers with a breadth of experience in the retina space. The programme will combine technology, empirical-evidence and lived-experience, providing a unique insight to the leaders of tomorrow.
