MATTERS NOT REQUIRING BOARD ACTION
Vision Health Month [P-12/PPC (D) 1] - The Department is once again highlighting October as School Vision Health Month to raise awareness of the importance of providing students access to vision health care. The Committee was provided with an update on this year’s activities. The Department is sponsoring eye clinics for students in Schenectady, Camden, Amsterdam, and Rome. As with last year’s inaugural event, the clinics are a Department partnership with VSP Global, the New York State Optometric Association, and the New York State Society of Opticians.
