Edmund Tsui, MD, talks the new AAO 2020 virtual format as well as presentations that have particularly caught his attention.
The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) 2020 Conference begins this weekend. Ophthalmologists from all over the world will connect digitally to present research, exchange ideas, and share experiences. The agenda boasts robust offerings of scientific posters, live sessions, symposiums, and lectures. Topics ranging from glaucoma, to age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and even emerging AIs, among others, will be covered.
The packed agenda only proves that ophthalmologists are eager to engage with their peers and immerse themselves in the buzz around their specialty. This weekend, HCPLive® will be covering the latest news coming out of AAO — coverage will feature late-breaking research as well as interviews with presenting doctors.
To help kick off the busy weekend, Edmund Tsui, MD, a uveitis specialist at UCLA and social media editor for the AAO Journal, joined HCPLive® on DocTalk for a discussion about what to expect in AAO 2020 as well as the significance of the virtual platform. He talked about a few of the studies that have caught his interest and how he plans to engage with the on-demand and live content.
