FEBRUARY 2008
27th Annual Squaw Valley Retinal Symposium

The 27th Annual Retina Symposium was held February 7-10 at Squaw Valley USA, and to the delight of all attendees, conditions were perfect for all major events – continuing medical education, skiing, and fellowship.

Attendees, consisting of both retina specialists and ophthalmologists of various specialties, numbered sixty-five.

This year’s featured guest faculty included Tom Chang, MD, from the Retina Institute in Pasadena, Lee M. Jampol, MD, from the Northwestern University, Mark W. Johnson, MD, from the University of Michigan, Rick S. Kaiser, MD, from the Wills Eye Hospital, Barry D. Kupperman, MD, from UC Irvine, Daniel F. Martin, MD, from Emory University, and Franco M. Reccia, MD, from the Vanderbilt Eye Institute.

Along with Dr. Maurice Landers, our own Rob Wendel served, again, as program director. Among the scientific presenters was Joel Pearlman, who presented results from our locally designed study of combined anti-VEGF pharmacotherapy and photodynamic therapy.

The symposium was both an academic and social success and we invite everyone to attend next year. (For details see www.squawvalleyretina.com.)
