As Vision 2020 Australia celebrates its 20th year, the Board is pleased to announce establishment of the annual Barry Jones Vision Oration, named in honour of the Hon Dr Barry Jones AC, who has been a long standing supporter of our shared vision over many years. This oration will offer an annual opportunity to recognise the importance of eye health and vision matters, and to profile the outstanding achievements across our sector.
For the inaugural oration, we are pleased to confirm that Dr James Muecke, 2020 Australian of the Year, will be speaking on the following topics:
- Harnessing your passion to change the world – social entrepreneurship
- Blinded by sugar – the toxic impact of sugar and the rising tide of type 2 diabetes
The event will be held via a national webinar at 5pm AEDT on Wednesday 28 October 2020. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
