Time: All Day
The Vision UK 2016 conference, Expanding Horizons will be held on Tuesday 14 June at The Grange Tower Bridge Hotel, London.
Vision UK is the leading annual conference for the eye health and sight loss sectors. Expanding Horizons will push the boundaries for implementing the UK Vision Strategy nationally and ensure that we engage with organisations and influencers across the wider health and social care sectors. For the first time the conference will collaborate with organisations such as Diabetes UK and Age UK to increase the support to implement the Strategy outcomes.
Ageing, eye health and sight loss: improving later life for people with sight loss
Diabetes and preventing blindness: the challenges and solutions to successfully managing diabetes and diabetic eye screening
Children and young people: education and inspiration
Science and technology: saving sight and social inclusion, what next?
The streams will feature inspiring presentations to highlight key strategic policy priorities in 2016. Presentations will be followed by a Q&A for delegates to discuss the issues with the experts.
The workshops will be led by experts to facilitate engaging discussions and shape tangible actions for delegates to take away from the day.
