Women's Eye Health and Safety Month.
Women often Manage family concerns, notes PBA. However, they may, in some cases, overlook their own health needs. Many may not understand how factors such as hormonal changes, age, or smoking can affect vision. The sponsoring organization offers information on both women's and family eye health issues through its Web site (www.preventblindness.org/news/observe.html).
National Youth Sports Safety Month.
Supported by more than 60 organizations (including the American College of Sports Medicine, the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, and the United States Olympic Committee), the National Youth Sports Safety Foundation's National Youth Sports Safety Month program offers safety tip sheets for children, guidelines for coaches and parents, and suggestions for special events to promote sports safety (www.nyssf.org/campaign.html).
