Acts of outreach from Iowa

I asked members of the HPS Network to share their acts of outreach with us, no matter how big or small. Elizabeth, an HPS mom from Iowa, shares that she has shared information about HPS with several online groups she belongs to, including a yahoo group for people from India that have albinism, and another for families that have adopted kids from Asia that have albinism. I happen to know it's working. We've had several new arrival adoptees get screened for HPS.

She's also shared information about HPS with her local school for the blind.

It's these sorts of acts of outreach that we need! Lets keep at it and get the word out about the importance of HPS screening for people with albinism.
