Keeping Injuries Down in Sports (K.I.D.S.)
Objective 28-9 of the Healthy People 2010 initiative is to: “Increase the use of personal protective eyewear in recreational activities and hazardous situations around the home.”
Now, in accordance with this objective, the AOA is launching the Keeping Injuries Down in Sports (K.I.D.S.) State Association Grant program, thanks to generous sponsorship from Liberty Sport. The grants provide funding assistance for projects that support public education and awareness of the prevention of sports-related eye injuries through the use of appropriate personal protective eyewear.
