Hawaiian Eye & Retina 2021 to be Rescheduled
Healio® LIVE Announces New Plans for In-person Meetings

Healio LIVE announced today that Hawaiian Eye & Retina 2021, scheduled for January in Maui, Hawaii, will be rescheduled to later in the year. Based on the recent surge in Coronavirus cases across the US and globally, organizers made the safety of attendees, faculty and industry their first priority. Moving the meetings to later in the year makes them safer for all and more viable as warmer weather and the introduction of vaccines now in development are expected to help curb the virus.

“A month ago as Hawaii reopened for travel there was reason to be optimistic that we could still be together this January in Hawaii. Now just a few weeks later, the number of new cases has risen dramatically. In consultation with Retina 2021 Planners Rishi Singh and Judy Kim, we’ve recognized that while Maui continues to have one of the lowest incidence rates in the country, the potential for the virus to be under control by January is unlikely for even the most optimistic among us,” said Richard L. Lindstrom, MD, Program Planner for Hawaiian Eye.

Final dates and location for Hawaiian Eye & Retina 2021 will be announced soon. Dates are pending finalization with hotel partners.

Pre-registrants of the meetings will be contacted by Healio LIVE meeting registration once dates have been confirmed. Attendees do not need to cancel their hotel reservations at this time as they can be shifted to the new dates.
