For only the second time in 124 years the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) has canceled its annual meeting; the other time was in 1945 at the height of World War II.
In light of epidemiological projections, government regulations and public health mandates to prevent the spread of disease — including social distancing, limited crowd sizes and face coverings — the meeting will now be virtual only.
AAO 2020 Virtual will take place 13-15 November, and will offer lively discussions, clinical pearls, fun activities and live interaction with presenters and industry.
From 12 August delegates can purchase the AAO 2020 Virtual All-Access Pass which provides:
- Admittance to over 100 hours of live-streaming, interactive sessions.
- Unlimited access to all on-demand annual meeting content, including all 8 Subspecialty Days and the AAOE practice management program.
- Up to 70 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
- A robust virtual exhibition where delegates can connect with industry representatives and learn about the latest products and services.
