Elena Sturman, President & CEO The Glaucoma Foundation

Research, collaboration, and education lie at the heart of our mission, and TGF’s 28th Annual Scientific Think Tank is on the front burner this spring.

Scheduled for June 9th and 10th, the Think Tank is the premier forum for the exchange of ideas among leading scientists in diverse fields to bring their knowledge to the challenges of glaucoma. Over the years, this international gathering has significantly increased the number of people working in the field, while helping to set the course for future glaucoma research. The 2023 presenters, from the US, the UK, and Australia, collectively represent the vanguard of exploration by medical science.

In its final session, the Think Tank will incorporate the latest science into a forum designed to bring patients, advocates, and caregivers into the discussion on living with glaucoma. If you will be in New York City on the morning of June 10 and would like to attend the patients forum, please send me an email with your phone number to find out how you can participate. 

Meanwhile, I remind you that glaucoma webinars are available on TGF’s website and on YouTube. We are especially grateful to Santen, Inc. for providing funding for these presentations. With Santen’s support, our webinars have been viewed by thousands of people in the U.S. and abroad, strengthening a valuable educational link between TGF and a broad audience of researchers, physicians, and patients.

We are equally grateful to you, our friends, for your ongoing support. Thank you.

My best to you and yours,
