OIB Program Manager

"As a rehabilitation professional, I have benefitted greatly from services and training offered by the staff in the past two years that I have served as an Older Blind Programs Manager. I came to this area via a new position and had to learn about services for older individuals who are blind on my own. If not for the valuable information, resources, and interactions with the staff from NRTC, I do not feel I would be as informed as I am today in this area."

OIB Program Manager

“I took over the program in Ohio with little knowledge of the program but was able to reach out to the OIB TAC to develop a foundation of information that has allowed me to grow and develop our program. Your staff is able to answer any question I have had or point me in the right direction to learn what I need to know.”
