November is National Diabetes Month
Diabetic eye disease, a leading cause of blindness, often has no early warning signs. Early detection, timely treatment and appropriate follow-up care are the only ways to prevent vision loss.
Join NEHEP in raising awareness about eye health and promote the following message among people with diabetes:
As a health and community professional, you are well positioned to encourage people to take steps to protect their vision. Help spread the word about diabetic eye disease with our latest educational resources. Additional materials can be found on the Diabetic Eye Disease Education Program page.
People with diabetes need to get an annual comprehensive dilated eye exam and keep their health on TRACK to prevent vision loss.
Join the TRACK Challenge!
During National Diabetes Month, the National Eye Health Education Program (NEHEP) is encouraging people to share how they follow the TRACK behaviors.
