Welcome!

February 27, 2017

Dear Friends. Colleagues, and Supporters:

On behalf of the Planning Committee for the 2017 Inaugural Sonoma Eye, we would like to express our deep appreciation to you for joining us at this special Meeting.

Your contribution – as a faculty member, a participant, a planner, or a supporter – was so valuable and has truly helped to make 2017 Sonoma Eye a great success.

We aim to fulfill an unmet need in bringing friends and colleagues across the globe who are interested in or who wish to learn and contribute to the field of ocular inflammation, whether it is applied to cornea and external diseases, retinal vascular diseases, or uveitis, to share knowledge and expertise. The vibrant and dynamic presentations and discussions that took place over the three days of the Meeting have demonstrated that all of us have been successful in our goals.

We hope that everyone has enjoyed getting reacquainted with old colleagues while meeting new ones, addressing several important scientific concepts and identifying aspects to set and launch new studies, and having some time with family and friends in a serene and beautiful environment.

Thank you again for joining us. We are grateful and look forward to welcoming you and your family back at 2018 Sonoma Eye. We will inform everyone of the exact dates and venue as soon as they are finalized.

Sincerely,

David S. Chu, MD and Quan Dong Nguyen, MD, MSc for the Planning Committee
