Dear NEHEP Partners,
Back-to-school season looks different this year, with many kids attending classes online due to COVID-19. This means they’re spending more time on screens — which can increase their risk for eye strain.
We’re using this Eye Health Connection Newsletter to feature news and resources about protecting kids’ eyes and promoting healthy vision. We’re also recognizing our ¡Ojo con su visión! pilot program partners for their work educating their communities about eye health.
We’d also like to wish Kristina Beaugh Savitske farewell after stepping down from her role as NEHEP Director in August. We appreciate all of her contributions to NEHEP over the last 2 years, and wish her well in her future endeavors!
Director of Communications
