Prescription Drug Risks Campaign (AFB)

Take a minute to read AFB’s news about accessible prescriptions. You can help!

Prescription Drug Risks Campaign from American Foundation for the Blind

Each day millions of people with vision loss put their lives – and the lives of those they care for – at risk because they can’t accurately read labels on prescription medications.

Shockingly, there are no federal guidelines to ensure that retail pharmacies provide drug information that is accessible to people with vision loss.

Being able to read a prescription drug label isn’t a convenience – it’s a matter of life and death.

That’s why AFB staff are mobilizing on Capitol Hill, meeting with legislators, fighting to give everyone with visual impairments access to the same information – from dosing instructions to precautions – as everyone else.

But we can’t do this alone – we need as many voices as possible to be heard loud and clear.

Please take one minute to complete a simple petition that we’ll forward to your congressional representative.

Sign the Petition.

Sincerely,
Carl Augusto
President & CEO
