November 2023 Newsletter From ISPB & PBIL

ISPB and PBIL have once again declared November as Diabetes-related Eye Disease Awareness Month, providing the public with a variety of helpful tools to prevent unnecessary vision loss from diabetes. 

DIABETES + THE EYES EDUCATIONAL TOOLKIT is available in English and Spanish. This resource includes Power Point presentations, shareable social media graphics and A DEDICATED WEBPAGE. The Diabetes + The Eyes program is supported by funding from REGENERON.

This new resource provides detailed information on what parents and care partners need to know to help youth with diabetes protect their eye health.
