Fighting Blindness is delighted that Retina 2020 has been shortlisted in the Educational Meeting of the Year (webinar) category at the 2021 Irish Healthcare Awards.
The Irish Healthcare Awards are Ireland’s leading and most prestigious medical Awards. Created by Irish Medical Times, the Awards are now in their 20th year and recognise innovation and excellence across the Irish healthcare sector.
Like many other things in 2020 year – Retina 2020 was a very different experience. For the first time in 21 years of running the conference, and in line with Covid-19 public health guidelines, we transitioned the two day event onto a virtual platform.
A new and exciting challenge for our team, moving Retina to an online setting resulted in our highest number of attendees to date – 763 in total.
We are looking forward to continuing this success at Retina 2021 taking place 5th and 6th November 2021. Retina 2021 will compose of a Scientific Day and a Public Engagement Day (PED). More information the PED will be available on the Fighting Blindness website.
