2017 Children's Vision Advocacy Day at the State House

The Children's Vision Massachusetts Coalition's 2017 Children's Vision Advocacy Day was held on October 18 at the Grand Staircase and Great Hall of Flags, Massachusetts State House. Over 150 people attended the event with 50 advocates making afternoon visits to 55 legislators and legislative staff.  By sharing personal stories and professional expertise, the advocates sent a strong message regarding the Coalition's lead ask, H3224/S1219 to establish a children's vision screening registry and special commission to study childhood vision and eye health, the next step to a comprehensive, universal, statewide, Children's Vision Health Program.
