    Vision Voice newsletter cover

    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 read 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.

    An audio version of this newsletter is also available. You can listen online or order a CD
