Diabetic Eye Disease Awareness Month Activities
November's Diabetic Eye Disease Awareness Month begins in just a few days and ASRS will be very active in helping to spread the word that with early detection and expert treatment from a retina specialist healthy vision is possible for the vast majority of people with diabetes. Our activities include media outreach, social media engagement, podcast and social video distribution and collaboration with partner organizations including the National Eye Institute.
You can help us reach an even broader audience when you:
- Visit our Media Resources page to access a customizable template news release and letter to the editor sharing information about diabetic eye disease for submission to your local media. A Spanish version of the news release is also available. The media resources page also offers tips on how to pitch your story to the news media and submit your customized letter.
