Patient perspective: Georgia Hall

2024-07-03 06:52:26

Georgia Hall was diagnosed and treated for choroidal melanoma in 2021 at Sydney Eye Hospital when she was 31 years old. She successfully received eye sparing plaque radiation therapy and now follows a rigorous scanning protocol at the Kinghorn Cancer Centre. 

She is passionate about sharing her experiences to help raise awareness around eye cancers. In 2022 she became the Australasian Ambassador to the Victoria Cohen Eye Cancer Charitable Trust. The charity is a strategic partner of the World Association of Eye Hospitals and awards scholarships to aspiring ocular oncologists to support their training and educational needs for their fellowship. Further information can be found at www.vcecct.org

Georgia Hall works as a sustainability research analyst for an investment firm and comes to speak on Friday the 13th at Sydney Eye Hospital during the 17th Annual meeting. 

The 17th annual meeting of the WAEH is approaching! From October the 10th till October the 14th we will visit the The Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital from Melbourne and the Sydney Eye Hospital  and the Chatswood Private Hospital from Sydney. You do not want to miss this exciting meeting in Australia! 

We will be talking about Quality and Safety in Eye Care, Innovation (think about ChatGPT in ophthalmology!), Philanthropy, Sustainability, and Workforce! Meet & network with the global network of eye hospitals and exchange knowledge and experience!
