Children’s Vision Georgia

In conjunction with Maternal and Child Health in the Georgia Department of Public Health, Prevent Blindness Georgia has assembled Children’s Vision Georgia, a coalition of agencies and leaders in children’s health and education. This group examines the effectiveness of local efforts to promote children’s vision health and performs activities to support the goals of the National Center.


GA Vision 2020

Mission: A network of vision service providers collaborating to prevent blindness and visual impairment and helping Georgians achieve their full visual potential through health promotions and education, service delivery and advocacy.
