A Voice of AMD Awareness

The Foundation’s ongoing print PSA campaign targets national magazines to help raise awareness about AMD risk, symptoms and resources. The effort has achieved visibility in highly circulated publications including AARP The Magazine, Southern Living and Cooking Light, among others, to reach millions of readers. An online PSA component also appeared on the websites of Women’s Health and Men’s Health magazines.

Reaching people who are affected with, or at risk for, AMD is an important part of the Foundation’s commitment to be the premier source of education and information for vision-robbing retinal conditions.
