WOMEN’S HEALTH & VISION SYMPOSIUM HAS BEEN POSTPONED.
PBT was looking forward to the event on Thurs, Sept 16, but due to uncontrollable circumstances, has postponed the Women’s Health & Vision Symposium for December 2. We apologize for any inconvenience, but look forward to an even better event in December.
Vision is a global concern. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 2.2 billion people have vision impairment, with 1 billion estimated to be children (The Children’s Vision and Eye Health: A Snapshot of Current National Issues 2nd Edition). The current challenges of health inequities, Covid-19, and missed vision screenings this past school year create an urgent need for organizations such as Prevent Blindness Texas to respond and ensure individuals, especially children, have access to quality eye care and education. PBT programs identify gaps in vision care access and provide accessibility to comprehensive follow-up eye care services aimed at preventing vision loss and increasing opportunity for better eye health overall.
We know vision plays a crucial role in a child’s physical, cognitive, and social development. Uncorrected vision problems can interfere with learning and even lead to permanent vision loss; early detection and treatment make a difference. Read more
