Furthermore, I would like to send you the information and proposed topics of Hospital Management Session in JECIM 2020 with proper graphic design. We also would like to invite the Chairman of the WAEH and from the selected topics we are thinking to collaborate with someone from Moorfields, Rotterdam Eye Hospital, Wilmer Eye Institute, and St. Erik Eye Hospital. In this regard, we already had a short discussion with SNEC, THONEH and Rutnin to collaborate with for the next JECIM 2020.
