transitions-logoSeeking to improve eye health awareness and encourage regular eye care among at-risk groups, Transitions Optical hosted a roundtable discussion exploring the need for eyecare professionals to collaborate with other key influencers —including general health professionals and health-based community and cultural organizations — to provide enhanced consumer education. The roundtable event, which was held in Miami, Fla., in July, was attended by representatives from multiple points of interaction with at-risk consumers, including the National Eye Health Education Program of the National Eye Institute, Familias con Diabetes, National Council of Negro Women, Yale New Haven Health System, National Association of Hispanic Nurses, and Philadelphia’s Albert Einstein Medical Center.

Key discussions and strategies presented during the roundtable will be published in a consensus paper, which will be made available in the coming months through MyMulticulturalToolkit.com.
