Important Bill Introduced

An important bill has been introduced to the US House of Representatives.  The Foundation Fighting Blindness is one of the many charities our Club supports. Recently, FFB was excited to report, the Faster Treatments and Cures for Eye Diseases Act (also known as Eye Bonds) was featured in a Wall Street Journal article titled, “The Woman Who Has a Plan for Wall Street to Help Cure Blindness.” The article also featured FFB Board Director Karen Petrou, who is regarded as the visionary for the legislation. This bill has the potential to greatly increase research funding for blinding eye conditions, including inherited retinal diseases.
