What We Do
- Work with Patient Partners to co-design research projects aimed at reducing the number of people who develop diabetic retinopathy.
- Create new pathways to care that increase access and prioritize patients and equity.
- Identify the barriers that people with diabetes face in getting effective screening and needed follow-up care and look for ways to reduce or eliminate these barriers.
- Develop and expand effective programs for preventing vision loss and diabetes-related complications on a larger scale.
