Looking forward: Vision Quest 2020

Crowd-applauds-Dr.-Gamm-at-Vision-Quest-in-Vancovuer

2019 was a big year for Vision Quest! Our signature educational series went coast-to-coast, with more than 650 people attending nationwide. Vision Quest events took several forms, from “TED-Talk-style” Speakers Series sessions to Lunch & Learn sessions to full-day symposiums designed to be interactive and resource-focused. We featured 36 speakers from across Canada, including retinal specialists, lead researchers, patient advocates and people with lived experience, all who shared their unique perspectives and expert knowledge about how patients can navigate their best vision care path.

Some of our 2019 highlights included:

Your Gut’s Influence on the Development of Blinding Eye Diseases

Restoring Vision with Stem Cells

The Era of Gene Therapy: A Panel Discussion

Diabetes Damage: The Effect on Your Eyes and How to Prevent It

2020 is shaping up to be another exciting year for Vision Quest and we will continue our mandate of sharing the latest breakthroughs with our supporters. We hope you will join us at one of our events this year!
