  2. Possible blog post – important eye health message
    Hi there,
    I work for the American Academy of ophthalmology and we work on different campaigns through our eyesmart site (www.geteyesmart.org) currently we are trying to reach out to blogs that reach our target audience in the African American community. In recognition of Black History month and diabetic eye disease, we created a PSA with congressman James E. Clyburn Urging African Americans with diabetes to get an Annual Diabetic Eye Exam in conjunction with the diabetes Association. I hope that you could put a link to this important message on your blog. Here is the link to the PSA: http://www.geteyesmart.org/eyesmart/resources/releases/2010_releases/20100129.cfm

    I appreciate your time and consideration.
