Vision Connections Conference

Vision Connections – the first step to seeing things differently


When: Friday, September 29, 2017
8:30 am – 1:00 pm
Where: Italian Community Center
631 E Chicago St, Milwaukee, WI 53202

More than 60,000 people in Southeastern Wisconsin have vison loss that cannot be corrected.  We want you to know that you are not alone.  The key to living successfully with changing vision is learning to accomplish everyday tasks in new and different ways.  Vision Connections is a half-day event that will introduce you to practical strategies for completing tasks, connect with others with vision loss, as well as services and products that are available to help make adjusting to vision loss easier.  Sessions will focus on personal experiences of living with vision loss, medical research and assistive technology.
