Shaping the Field of Vision Loss
Earlier this month, the Executive Leadership Conference hosted by VisionServe Alliance featured an Open Space Technology meeting format – and was a huge success!
Hundreds of attendees and industry leaders from around the country participated, bringing a wealth of knowledge to be shared. Our own David Morgan (Future In Sight President &CEO) was instrumental in guiding breakout sessions touching on a variety of key topics in the field of blindness and vision impairment that ranged from education needs of children, inclusiveness in employment, braille literacy, the needs of blind veterans, funding for, and the emerging importance of, assistive technology, and building sustainable revenue sources.
In the coming weeks, we will be publishing a series of blogs highlighting important takeaways from the event including the future of education for children with vision loss, the power of assistive technology to innovate practice, transportation access to meet the needs of seniors, and employment challenges and opportunities for adults and seniors.
