Members discuss different cultural challenges and opportunities regarding donation and ways to overcome them. Learn from the lived experiences from your colleagues in eye banking, and engage in open discourse to improve cultural understanding relating to donation and beyond. 

    EBAA Community Chats are member-driven discussions on topics of importance and relevance to the eye banking community. The chats are held on the Zoom Meetings platform and provide members with the opportunity to ask questions of the community and share experiences and insights.  All EBAA Members are invited to join and are encouraged to participate in the discussion.

    Members only. No CEUs will be awarded for this session.
