Become involved in creating a sustainable and successful future
Tuesday 6th March, 2018 | 7:00pm - 8:15pm AEDT
Optometry Australia invites you to participate in Optometry 2040 – Taking Control of Our Future, a project devised by Optometry Australia to help the optometry sector create a sustainable and successful future over the next 20 years and beyond.

Your involvement in this initiative is key.  We want to hear from you about the key opportunities, challenges and barriers shaping the future of your profession, and about what you want optometry’s future to be. The first opportunity to input to Optometry 2040 is an interactive, national webinar focused on identifying the main factors influencing the future of optometry over the next 20 years, what their impact may be and when those impacts will be felt.

All registrants will be emailed a short briefing paper prior to the event.
