We kick off each new year with a trip to a sunny and scenic Hawaiian island. In 2017, more than 225 retina specialists will come together for Retina 2017, to be held January 16-20, 2017, at the Grand Hyatt Kauai. Many physicians also bring family along, so after sessions they can enjoy the island together.
Our program features a fast-paced mix of scientific and clinical presentations, along with dynamic panel discussions and question and answer sessions. Each day will offer a different focus area, so we can explore the latest information about new therapeutic agents, surgical techniques and clinical trial results.
We're privileged to have nearly 20 of the retina specialty's foremost experts join us and provide attendees with experienced perspective. The faculty wear leis, so you can easily identify and approach them with questions or feedback.
We also provide breakout sessions as opportunities to have intimate conversations among smaller groups of peers. Meeting events are unopposed and included with your registration fee (except the luau), including:
- Breakfast and lunch programs offer meals at tables of 10 as you dive deeper into today's hot topics.
- General sessions featuring didactic and interactive presentations to cover the entire scope of your practice.
- Banyan tree sessions are a favorite for face-to-face casual discussions among 50 colleagues, held outdoors with a great view, while snacks are served.
- Family activities include the sandcastle competition complete with buckets, shovels and awards (this year’s theme is “under the sea”) and an evening luau featuring dinner/dessert buffets and entertainment.
We've created the perfect mix of learning, networking and reenergizing that keeps attendees coming back year after year. While we continue to update the meeting with new topics and features, we're also committed to our foundation that makes Retina one of the most successful continuing medical education opportunities in ophthalmology.
We look forward to seeing you, your staff and your families in Kauai.
