Outreach Opportunities

Join other health centers, medical professionals, businesses, employers, and citizens across the country who are helping older adults learn about the importance of eye health. Every effort helps adults ages 50 and older make their vision a health priority. Visit the secure NEI publications catalog to find educational materials for your eye health education program or activity.


  • Health Observances
    Health observances are days, weeks, or months devoted to promoting particular health concerns. They are a great time to schedule special events and give you the opportunity to educate older adults in your community about eye health.
