This is the audio version of our Vision Voice autumn 2022 newsletter, which is out now!
The newsletter is read by Dilini Manthilaka, one of our Health Promotion Officers within our Programs and Services team.
If you would prefer the print version, it is also online and available for order.
In this newsletter, we report on how we’re making your voice heard ahead of the upcoming Federal Election.
We remain committed to working with the next parliament to prevent the proposed cut to the Medicare rebate for sight-saving eye injections and to improve access to this vital treatment.
You’ll also hear about our plans for Macula Month in May – our time to raise our collective voice. Macula Month will focus on your stories about accessing treatment. If you have a story to share with us, please get in touch at [email protected] or www.mdfoundation.com.au/47K.
Also in this edition of Vision Voice, ophthalmologist A/Prof Alex Hunyor busts some common eye health myths and exercise physiologist Lily Hayes teaches us how to exercise safely at home.
You’ll also meet Mr Graeme Head AO, the new Chairman of the MDFA Board, and Patrick Jensen, a member of the macular disease community who recently competed at the Winter Paralympics in Beijing.
Listen to how MDFA is delivering diabetes education to Indigenous communities in South Australia, sign up for one of our upcoming webinars, get involved with peer support, and even whip up a delicious and eye-healthy salmon and spinach recipe!
You can listen to the audio version of the newsletter below, or order a CD to be sent to you.
