In-Focus Podcast: Michael Griffith

In episode 5 of the In-Focus podcast, Avril is joined by Michael Griffith. Michael was a founder of Fighting Blindness Ireland in 1983 and has been a central figure in the retina community, advocating for the progression of retinal research and the establishment of policies which will support people living with retinal conditions, for over 20 years.

Michael lives with Retinitis Pigmentosa and is a firm believer in the power of mindfulness to re-connect us with the present moment, develop resilience and offer tools to help us cope with the struggles of daily life. In addition to serving the retina community, mindfulness is beneficial for everyone and is especially important during these challenging times in face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since retiring as CEO from Fighting Blindness Ireland, Michael has been involved in promoting mindfulness in Ireland and abroad, and is a proud co-founder of Mindful Nation Ireland. Through this work, Michael hopes to spread the practice of mindfulness and promote its integration into wider society, engaging with politicians and leaders both in Ireland and internationally so that we can begin to lead a more content and fulfilling life together.
