MillennialEYE Live Residents and Fellows Poster Contest

MillennialEYE Live would like to extend this priority invitation to residents/fellows to attend the upcoming MillennialEYE Live meeting, now in its fourth year, being held at the Sheraton Nashville Downtown Hotel, Tennessee, September 8–10, 2017. The future leaders in ophthalmology will convene for this unique meeting experience, designed exclusively for millennial-minded surgeons. Featuring a high level of digital interactivity, social media use, and audience participation, MillennialEYE Live promotes opportunities for education, interaction, and networking among peers and industry alike—in an environment tailored to this innovative demographic. To facilitate this educational opportunity, MillennialEYE is offering support to the first 50 US and Canadian resident and fellow applicants who submit a poster to the MillennialEYE Live Residents and Fellows Poster Contest below. 

What's Covered

Each resident/fellow who is awarded support will receive the waiver of his/her registration fee to attend the meeting, two nights’ hotel accommodations at the Sheraton Nashville Downtown Hotel (or an alternative hotel in close proximity to the Sheraton based on availability) on Friday and Saturday night September 8–10, and a $200 travel stipend toward travel expenses. The foregoing support will be awarded to the first 50 residents/fellows who successfully complete and accept the terms of the poster contest application below.
