Our very own Dr. Denise Chamblee has been very busy giving lectures at various Ophthalmology meetings and events. Dr. Chamblee attended and spoke at the Women in Ophthalmology Annual Meeting, the Virginia Society of Eye Physicians and Surgeons and also at the American Academy of Ophthalmology Annual Meeting.
Dr. Chamblee started off at the Annual Women in Ophthalmology Symposium. Women in Ophthalmology (WIO) was founded to enhance and improve the professional environment for women ophthalmologists. Their Annual Symposium encompasses all elements of this mission by providing solid scientific and practice management education, and leadership programs.
The meeting is designed especially for women in the field of ophthalmology and maximizes the opportunity for them to interact with and learn from peers from across the country and across the globe.
Then it was off to The Virginia Society of Eye Physicians & Surgeons (VSEPS) Meeting. This is a statewide, non-profit organization comprised of medical doctors and doctors of osteopathy. Their mission is to advocate for the best quality eye care through education, legislative efforts and community service.
Dr. Chamblee‘s presentation for both the WIO and the VSEPS meetings focused on how to improve outcomes for patients.
Lastly, Dr. Chamblee spoke at the American Academy of Ophthalmology Annual Meeting. This is the largest Ophthalmology meeting in the word, and hosts upwards of 30,000 attendees. Dr. Chamblee was chosen as one of four to speak about her Leadership Development Program (LDP), titled Connecting AAPOS to March of Dimes (MOD) to Improve ROP Public Education.
We are proud of Dr. Chamblee and her dedication to continuing education and commitment to improving the Ophthalmology field.
