The Older Individuals who are Blind (OIB) Technical Assistance Center hosted an inaugural OIB Program Manager’s Technical Assistance Conference September 10-12 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The conference provided OIB program managers from 35 states and territories an opportunity to learn about best practices, data collection and analysis, and trends in OIB programs.
Sylvia Perez, OIB-TAC Project Director, felt that the conference reflected the OIB-TAC mission perfectly. Perez explained that “It’s all about helping older people with visual impairments become more independent—and this conference helped put that back in focus for many.”
