The Low Vision Experience: July 14th “Diversity Series” Virtual Event

In recognition of the 31st anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), SUNY College of Optometry is presenting “The low vision experience” as part of its Diversity Series. Their Office of DEIB (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging) is bringing together a panel to explore ways providers can help patients with vision loss beyond “the exam room.” Panelists include Carol Moog, Senior Mobility Instructor, Lighthouse Guild; Edwin Mercado, a patient advocate; two representatives from the Andrew Heiskell Braille and Talking Book Library: Chancey S. Fleet, Head of Coaching & Assistive Technology Instructor, and Jill Rothstein, Chief Librarian; and Dr. Rebecca Marinoff, SUNY Optometry’s Low Vision Residency Supervisor. You can register for the event, to be held on Wednesday on Zoom, July 14 from 7:30 – 8:30 pm EDT at SUNY Optometry’s website.
