Let’s Chat About … Genetic Testing

March 15, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Sofia Sees Hope is proud to bring our web series “Let’s Chat About …” to the Leber congenital amaurosis and rare inherited retinal disease communities. We’ve developed the series with those living with LCA and IRDs in mind, but we invite all members of our community, including those in research, industry, and the regulatory communities to join any of the sessions, as we look ahead to a common goal of advancing treatments for rare retinal disease.
