Morgan Sarver Symposium Cancelled

We are disappointed to announce that the 2020 Morgan-Sarver Symposium will not be held. The campus has concluded that there is too great a risk, at this time, to the health of our attendees due to coronavirus (COVID-19). In addition, several of our external speakers are no longer allowed to travel away from their home university/hospital.

Full Refunds

Attendees that have already registered will receive a full refund. Refunds will happen automatically — you don’t have to do anything more to receive a refund. Please allow us two weeks to process your refund.

Expiring Licenses

We are aware that some of you were counting on CE credit from the symposium for license renewal. The California State Board of Optometry is aware of the impact to in-person continuing education requirements due to coronavirus, and have communicated that they are “drafting language and consulting with Legal Counsel inside the Department of Consumer Affairs regarding emergency rulemaking….and are considering options, including the acceptance of increased self-study for the targeted and specific licensees who face renewal dates in the next six months.” We will monitor the situation and consider offering alternate forms of education once we understand what will be allowed and helpful. For more information, please contact the State Board directly via the link below.

Questions?

We will miss you all at this year’s event, but we strongly believe that it is not in the public interest of our alumni, speakers and other attendees for the symposium to proceed. Although this is discouraging news, we feel that we all have to join together to protect the community and fight the spread of COVID-19.

If you have any thoughts or questions, please contact the Berkeley Optometry Continuing Education & Events Office.
