Thurs., April 09, 2014 (Washington, DC) -- More than a dozen Illinois ophthalmologists are in the Nation's Capital to bring members of Congress their message relating to quality, cost effective medical and surgical eye care.  Included in the delegation are six residents in training from each of the Chicago area residency programs.  The "Resident Ambassadors" are helping to represent the state and to learn about major policy issues that will be presented this weekend during the American Academy of Ophthalmology MidYear Forum.  Come back to the blog soon to see updates and photos from the event as it unfolds.
