Linn County Blindness Support Group Meeting

February 27, 2020
If you are blind or experiencing loss of vision, life can be pretty scary if you don’t have any tools or connections to deal with the situation.  Participating in a support group can help you find that you are not alone, and together we can share tips and tricks we have found to overcome difficulties posed by loss of vision.  Though not a part of the Iowa Department for the Blind (IDB), support groups also act as a liaison with that state agency that provides training, equipment, and counseling to those with vision loss.

The Linn County blindness support group will have its next regularly scheduled meeting on Thursday, 27 February 2010 from 1:00 p.m. to approximately 3:00 p.m. in Sedlacek Hall at Cottage Grove Place, 2115 1st Av SE, in Cedar Rapids.

Our guest speaker is Dr. Elizabeth Gauger, a Cedar Rapids ophthalmologist.  It’s hard to get eye doctors to take time off to speak to groups like ours, so this is a special opportunity to ask questions of an eye specialist.

The Gazette published an excellent article on our group on 6 January.  Here it is:  https://www.thegazette.com/subject/news/community/cedar-rapids-group-formed-to-support-blind-visually-impaired-residents-20200106

If you have questions, or want more information about the group, feel free to call Jonathan Ice at 319-298-2919, or e-mail at jkice89@q.com.
