Public Service

We provide and support public opportunities for Media, screenings, and Diabetes Awareness.

Print and Media Advertisements
The Massachusetts Vision Foundation places ads in the State House News, local newspapers and local radio stations reminding Massachusetts citizens of the importance of regularly scheduled eye examinations with their local optometrist.

Student Scholarships
The Massachusetts Vision Foundation awards a scholarship each year to a student from the New England College of Optometry, and a student from MCPHS School of Optometry, who intend to practice optometry in Massachusetts upon graduating.

Vision Screening at Kit Clark Center in Boston
The Massachusetts Vision Foundation worked with the New England College of Optometry to coordinate a vision screening of elderly citizens at the Kit Clark Senior Center in Boston. Over 120 senior citizens were screened by doctors and students of optometry.

Spanish Language PSA On Diabetes Awareness and Care
The MassVision Foundation collaborated with the local chapter of the National Diabetes Education Program on creating a Spanish-language PSA on diabetes, aimed at Hispanic communities in Massachusetts. As diabetes continues to be a major public health issue, the PSA helped to create awareness of the complications that can arise from the disease.
