The White House Conference on Aging is held every decade to provide aging policy recommendations to the President and Congress. As much of the conference will address the productivity and quality of life of our aging population, NAEVR's message about the value of federally-funded eye and vision research being conducted by the National Eye Institute (NEI) will be important, as the treatments and therapies emerging from this research can preserve and restore vision.
The conference was held from December 11 to 14, 2005, at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, DC.
