International has become a support organization for The Foundation Fighting
Blindness which combines the strength of The Foundationís research mission
to find treatments and cures for Macular
Degeneration with MDIís mission to help people lead independent
and rewarding lives.
In addition to funding research, The Foundation produces comprehensive patient education materials for Macular Degeneration and related diseases. With our complementary strengths, MDI and The Foundation can better serve its constituents.
Being a support organization for The Foundation will allow MDI to provide its constituents with up-to-the-minute research information without diverting us from our primary mission to help patients with Macular Degeneration live independent and productive lives. Members of MDI will receive The Foundationís newsletters filled with information about research and clinical trials for Macular Degeneration. MDI will contribute to The Foundationís newsletters with low-vision information.
