Attendees participated in a conversation about diabetes for Diabetes Awareness Month on Monday, November 16. Individuals who are diabetic and are blind or who have low vision face a variety of daily challenges. From eating the right types of food to testing blood sugar, there are often many considerations that need to be addressed to help them maintain independence and remain healthy. Experts discussed the techniques and strategies that help us best serve these individuals. We had a lively discussion. If you wish to contact us, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kendra Farrow and Sylvia Stinson-Perez, both certified vision rehabilitation therapists, and Audrey Demmitt, registered nurse helped us discuss the topic of managing diabetes with vision loss.
