About the Event
For more than 30 years, Mary Tyler Moore led the JDRF and the fight against Type 1 Diabetes and its complications, including Diabetic Retinal Disease (DRD), the leading cause of blindness worldwide and a disease that affected her personally.
Her husband, Dr. S. Robert Levine, is carrying on her work and helped to create the Restoring Vision Moonshot in 2018 as a special initiative of the JDRF and the Mary Tyler Moore and S. Robert Levine Charitable Foundation. The Moonshot is a global collaboration organized to provide essential research resources and deliver groundbreaking science with the overarching goal of developing methods to preserve, restore, and protect visual function in people with diabetes.
FORCE Family Office is proud to present an expert panel on this subject, including:
- Dr. S. Robert Levine: President of the Mary Tyler Moore & S. Robert Levine, MD Charitable Foundation
- Dr. Jennifer Sun: Chief of the Center for Clinical Eye Research and Trials of the Beetham Eye Institute, Joslin Diabetes Center, and Associate Professor of Ophthalmology at Harvard Medical School and a Co-Chair of the Restoring Vision Moonshot Steering Committee
- Dr. Brian Levy: CEO of InflammX, a clinical stage company developing novel treatments for Diabetic Retinal Disease
They will discuss the key initiatives for the Moonshot and how they are helping support advances in research and treatment for DRD.
