RESCHEDULED // Saving Sight Session // Uveitis and You

August 13 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Thank you for your interest in the Spring 2020 Saving Sight Session. In alignment with UW­­­Madison campus and CDC guidelines related to COVID-19, we have decided to postpone this event. “Uveitis and You” has been rescheduled for Thursday, August 13, 2020.

Event cancelation is part of a larger proactive UWMadison campus and SMPH plan to minimize person-to-person spread of COVID-19 in our community. Thank you for your understanding.

Free and open to the public, this community-centric event is modeled after the UW-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health’s “Mini-Med School” programs. Our spring 2020 Saving Sight Session will feature leading research from the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at the University of Wisconsin. Please join us for this exciting discussion and light dinner.
