BARS Council are pleased to announce that the 2021 BARS Conference will be held in a virtual format due to the uncertainty surrounding the present Covid-19 pandemic. This will be an exciting event (A first for BARS) and the BARS Council are currently working on the agenda which will benefit anybody involved in diabetic eye screening. The idea of a virtual conference was to ensure that people feel safe and to get people involved. We are hoping to include the photography and poster competition as well as an OCT workshop too. Full details of the agenda will follow soon. Registration will be required.
The conference which was moved from last year to this year will now be moved to next year at the same venue and will held on the 22nd and 23rd September, 2022. Delegates will be contacted in due course and offered a refund or for their booking to be carried over to next year.
Booking is online via our dedicated Eventbrite page. All major credit and debit cards are accepted, or choose ‘Show other payment options' to pay by cheque or request an invoice. Please use link below:
BARS Council have worked hard to keep the conference registration costs down and to make it more accessible. The cost for attending the virtual conference will be £25 per person. BARS relies on the conference to function and continue its year round service to its members. Therefore this nominal charge has been actioned by BARS as the council felt this was proportional and appropriate. BARS council hopes screening programmes will support the conference and the future success of BARS.
