We encourage the generation and use of robust scientific evidence to guide care.
One Retinoblastoma World is a global network with the bold idea that all children with RB can have equal opportunity to access optimal care. When diagnosed early and treated effectively, childhood eye cancer is curable. No child should die, or suffer avoidable blindness because of it.
Many challenges impede scientific research needed to develop evidence based care, but One Retinoblastoma World is breaking down those obstacles.
This year’s program evolved from 10 questions commonly asked by parents and survivors. Each question will be explored in depth through a combination of presentations, open floor discussion and small-group breakout sessions.
Providing educational and networking opportunities for all stakeholders, this working meeting will focus on building connections and collaborations to advance care for all children, survivors and families. Engaging clinicians, researchers, families and survivors together will create shared learning and novel partnerships.
World Eye Cancer Hope USA founding board member and One Retinoblastoma World conference chair Marissa Gonzalez is most excited about the Family Social Day.
“Bringing together parents, patients and survivors in person for the first time on a national and international scale in the USA will be an incredible opportunity for learning, bonding and in many cases healing from shared experiences. For some, it will be the first time they meet a fellow RB survivor – forging these new relationships and strengthening existing ones will be an incredible experience for all involved.” – Marissa Gonzalez
Lower registration fees are available for clinicians from Low and Lower-Middle Income Countries, and for parents and survivors, to enable vital inclusive global collaboration.
