Join us for the 48th Annual Sally Letson Symposium for two and a half days of learning and networking!

This year's symposium will be chaired by Dr. Emmett Cunnigham, Director of the Uveitis Service at California Pacific Medical Center and Adjunct Clinical Professor of Ophthalmology at Stanford University School of Medicine. A renowned international faculty has been recruited for this event and record attendance is expected. Over the years the Sally Letson Symposium has grown from a handful of registrants to more than 800, and the symposium has become one of the two principle ophthalmic meetings in Canada.
