    Vision Voice audio: spring 2021

    Listen to our spring 2021 Vision Voice online, or order the CD.

    The Vision Voice newsletter comes out three times a year. It’s our newsletter to keep you up to date with what we’re doing on behalf of the macular disease community. You’ll also find the latest research news, upcoming events, and inspiring stories from our community.

    This is the audio version of the newsletter. It is read by Karen Russell, a member of our community who is living with age-related macular degeneration.

    The spring 2021 edition of MDFA’s Vision Voice newsletter begins with a message to our community from Health Minister Greg Hunt, seeking to allay your concerns about the proposed Medicare rebate changes for eye injections.

    We also catch up on everything that happened during Macula Month this May.

    Meet the eight cutting-edge researchers who were awarded more than $1 million in MDFA research funding and learn about the projects they’re working on.

    Plus, hear about the inaugural Ita Buttrose Oration as well as new MDFA Ambassador Dr James Muecke spreading the word about diabetic eye disease.

    This issue of Vision Voice also features advice on how you can stay safe online, major Government grants that will help the macular disease community, and the latest on our new peer support groups in Townsville, Melbourne and online.

    You can also hear about all the webinars we’ve got coming up, how your community group can book an MDFA speaker, and an update from our CEO Dee Hopkins.
