National Glaucoma Awareness Month
Glaucoma is a leading cause of vision loss and blindness in the United States. People are often unaware that glaucoma has no symptoms in its early stages. If detected early, before noticeable vision loss occurs, glaucoma can usually be controlled and severe vision loss can often be prevented. Vision that is lost from glaucoma cannot be restored. Join the National Eye Institute and the National Eye Health Education Program (NEHEP) and encourage people at higher risk for glaucoma to make a resolution for healthy vision this new year. https://nei.nih.gov/nehep/gam/
Thyroid Awareness Month
The thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland located at the base of the neck. Although relatively small, the thyroid plays a huge role in the body, influencing the function of many important organs, including the heart, brain, liver, kidneys, and skin. Talk with your healthcare provider about whether your thyroid is healthy and functioning properly. https://www.ihs.gov/newsroom/announcements/2018-announcements/national-thyroid-awareness-month/
