Join Us for the AFI 2015 "Make A Miracle" Conference 
Hosted by AFI and University of British Columbia

Aniridia Foundation International is pleased to announce our 2015 “Make a Miracle” conference, which will be taking place August 12th – 15th in Vancouver, British Columbia. Our venue hosts are the University of British Columbia Department of Ophthalmology and Eye Care Centre.  

This unique conference brings together physicians, researchers, individuals with aniridia and their families to work as a team in investigating, sharing, and learning about the medical and scientific latest findings of aniridia syndrome. There will be technical sessions for physicians and researchers only, and other sessions will be focused towards the aniridia community. Then as true to our last eight “Make a Miracle” conferences, there will be “life changing sessions” where physicians, researchers, those with aniridia and their families learn from each other and brainstorm for advancements. We hope you will join us….working together towards better treatments and a cure…we can make a difference in many lives. 

The Make a Miracle FINAL PROGRAM will have all times, locations, etc and will be part of the materials you will receive at the conference check in on August 12th from 5-9 pm. CLICK HERE for an idea of the presentations and events to look forward to.
