COVID-19

The health of our community is our primary concern and to that end Pan-American Research Day 2020 is cancelled.  ARVO has been cancelled as well.  

Pan-American Research Day

 

PARD is held yearly the day before ARVO. Everyone presenting at ARVO is invited to share their research in a quick 5-minute format. This popular event will bring you up to speed on all the latest research in one day.

In an effort to stimulate research at the Pan-American level and recognize the efforts of our young investigators, the Pan-American Association of Ophthalmology (PAAO) has been organizing the Pan-American Research Day, in conjunction with the important partnerships with the Association of Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) and with Allergan Latin America, for the past several years and it has become an exciting tradition.

  • It is FREE
  • Saturday, 2 May 2020 Cancelled
  • At the John Hopkins University in Baltimore
  • Deadline to register is April 20, 2020

Chair, Organizing Committee
