"Got AMD?" posters make a nationwide impact
The Foundation of the American Society of Retina Specialists funded the development and distribution of "Got AMD?" public awareness posters. Since their initial release, the American Society of Retina Specialists has mailed more than 800 sets of posters to senior citizens facilities, low-vision rehabilitation clinics, community health centers, and Veterans Administration hospitals across the country—all by request!
