On Saturday, September 22, 2012, the Macular Degeneration Association (MDA) will host an educational symposium in Raleigh, North Carolina at McKimmon Conference and Training Center, located at 1101 Gorman Street. The event is designed to give an overview of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), including the progression of the disease and the dangers of vision loss as a result. The symposium will also cover precautionary methods that may delay the onset of AMD and reduce retinal damage.
Event attendees will learn the latest treatment advances evolving in the macular field, including the revolutionary Macula Risk®test, a genetic test predicting one's likelihood of developing AMD. In addition to establishing an individual’s genetic predisposition to macular degeneration, the test is also useful in formulating a customized treatment plan for those already diagnosed with AMD. This test is covered by Medicare and most major insurance companies.
Exhibitors and featured event speakers will offer participants many opportunities to learn about the latest advances in macular degeneration research,precautionary methods, medications, treatments, and low vision therapies.There will be talks on What is Macular Degeneration; Effects of the Disease; Early Precaution; Benefits of Genetic Testing; Nutrition, Low Vision; and Emerging Technologies.
MDA’s educational symposium in Raleigh, NC will provide attendees with a unique opportunity to interact with nationally known macular experts, local doctors, fellow patients and caregivers in an open forum.
