Article Research Articles Collection
The Research Articles Collection is a curated collection of relevant research to support grant writing and inform direct service. This Research Article Collection helps professionals seeking relevant articles and important peer-reviewed publications about aging and vision loss. This database is searchable by article topic, keyword, author, publishing timing (year or range), and free/open-source research versus other access options. The Research Articles Collection (RAC) is an exciting partnership of OIB-TAC, the Aging and National Vision Loss Coalition (AVLNC), and VisionServe Alliance.
Quarterly webinars educate our industry professionals and all others interested in aging and blindness & low vision on topics including Big Data, the 2016 NASEM Eye Health report, social determinants of health, and health equity. View our calendar for upcoming webinars and events.
