Virtual Events

Affinity Groups

We will be discontinuing our weekly call State of Vision Rehab in the Age of COVID-19. Instead, we will be offering monthly affinity groups, focusing on a particular topic for collaboration and idea generation. These groups will not have a presentation but provide a forum for discussion and collaboration around their focus topic. Groups will meet once a month at a time agreed on by the group’s participants.
