Diversity, Equity and Inclusion series

The aim of the conference is to educate the audience on clinical pearls, best practices, quality improvement, and examining the contemporary evidence.

This Grand Rounds course is part of a series developed in partnership with the Casey Advancement of Diversity and Inclusion in Ophthalmology (CADIO) committee and Casey Eye Institute's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion program. This session will meet the Oregon Medical Board’s requirement for cultural competency training (OMB requires at least 1 hour of cultural competency continuing education per year). 

    Course details

    Since 2010, the OHSU Casey Eye Institute (CEI) Community Outreach Program has been dedicated to addressing preventable blindness directly in the community by providing free vision health services to adults who have little or no access to vision care. By working in partnership with an expanding network of community-based agencies across Oregon, the outreach program is leveraging the advantages of their mobile health units, advances in diagnostic imaging equipment, and telehealth information technology. Together, these tools are empowering community health to address the social and political determinates of health – helping establish the Oregon Vision Health Network.

    Target audience: Ophthalmologists and ophthalmologists in training.
