Two national conventions held in July offer valuable information and resources for the visually impaired
If you have never been to a gathering of more than 2,000 people living with all levels of vision impairment, consider making your summer plans around one of the following consumer conferences. These events are organized with many purposes in mind. People living with sight impairment ranging from mild to profound can learn about public policies, participate in social events, workshops for personal and professional growth and acquire knowledge of new technologies and products to enhance daily life. Consider one of the following adventures this summer – and of not this year hopefully in the future.
