Chicago-The positive effects on vision health that have arisen from partnerships between Prevent Blindness America (PBA) affiliates and their respective state public health entities are detailed in the organization’s latest report.

“The Vision Connection: Integrating Vision into State Health Programs,” based on multi-year cooperative agreements with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), contains examples from Georgia, New York/New Jersey/Connecticut, Ohio, and Texas.

“We hope that the Vision Connection report will serve as just a small example of how state entities can work together to have a tremendous impact on communities across the country,” said Hugh R. Parry, president and chief executive officer of PBA. “We also would like to thank the CDC for their continued support and commitment to protecting vision.”
