COVID-19 Announcement:

Due to recent recommendations by the Oregon Governor and State Health Officials, the Oregon Academy of Ophthalmology’s Board has made the difficult decision to postpone the March 13, 2020 Ophthalmic Medical Technology Meeting to August 28, 2020. As you know, a large percentage of our patient groups align with the COVID-19’s identified high risk group. Accordingly, for the safety of our patients and members, we believe it is in the public interest to avoid a large gathering of Ophthalmologists from around the state and country at this time.

We continue to strive to deliver a high-value CME event for you and are working on securing the same speakers for August 28, 2020. PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS!  All registrations will be carried over. We are also working on a live stream and possibly even video archive option for the conference to provide the greatest flexibility and participation.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we all navigate these difficult times.
