On Tuesday 22 November 2016, Hadassah Australia hosted a luncheon at the Melbourne Convention Exhibition Centre for ophthalmologists attending the RANZCO conference. The luncheon was called to raise awareness and funds for a new collaboration between Hadassah and St John of Jerusalem Eye Hospital called ‘Peace in Sight’.

This collaboration seeks to establish a genetic research unit focussed on hereditary eye disease at St John to serve the Palestinian communities. Many prominent Australian and New Zealand ophthalmologists attended, with an address given by Professor Hugh Taylor AC. The video can be seen below.
