Save the date for the HMS Department of Ophthalmology Annual Meeting and Alumni Reunion, a two-day event that showcases the latest advances in clinical care and research in ophthalmology. The event is aimed at current and former members of the department, including faculty, ophthalmology residents and fellows, and research trainees. On the first day, the Annual Meeting features department updates, faculty presentations, the keynote Mariana Mead Lecture, and a poster contest presented by current trainees. The Alumni Reunion, held on the second day, unites our newest resident and fellowship graduates with our alumni and highlights the careers and accomplishments of 10 alumni who deliver lectures as representatives of their graduating classes. Distinguished Achievement Awards are also presented for both clinical and research accomplishments.  This weekend provides opportunities to reconvene with former classmates, meet members of the current Harvard Medical School faculty, tour newly renovated areas of the hospital, and reconnect to Boston.

Continuing Medical Education (CME) status for the 2016 event is pending.
