The Remarkable Retina and Falls Convention
Speaker: Catherine Cukras, M.D., ph.D./ National Eye Institute. According to the National Eye Institute(NEI) at National Institutes of Health(NIH), falls and vision loss are among the most common fears for older adults. Diseases of the retina and other parts of the eye can impact our ability to stay safe as we age. Join Dr. Cukras and learn about current research outcomes on retinal diseases, including treatments to slow the progression of visual impairment, thereby reducing the chances of life- altering falls. Information will also be available on participating in NEI research efforts. To register, contact Larry at (301) 244-8004.
