See to My Safety” Making Rx Info Accessible to Blind & Partially Sighted

Nearly 14 million Americans, most of whom are 65 years of age or older, have low vision or are blind, and for these individuals, not being able to clearly read a prescription label can result in unnecessary injury or even death.  The goal of the National Council on Disability (NCD)’s “See to My Safety” public awareness campaign is to promote the knowledge of the availability of best practices regarding accessible prescription medication labels. The campaign includes an informational brochure and an audio public service announcement (PSA), as well as regular distribution of news of pharmacies voluntarily offering accessible drug labeling.
