Announcing the 2018 NFB of Georgia Atlanta Seminar/Blind Day at the Capitol

You are invited to join the NFB of Georgia during our Atlanta Seminar on February 12, 2018 at the Capitol building in Atlanta. We will be meeting with legislators to discuss protecting the rights of blind parents and other issues relevant to the blind community.

Join us from 9:00-11:00 AM in CAP 122 on the first floor to hear from speakers and meet with our legislators about this important issue. Please invite your legislators to join us during this time.

After 11:00 AM, we encourage everyone to set up a meeting with your legislator to continue the conversation about protecting the rights of blind parents.

Across the country and right here in Georgia, parents have faced discrimination and their right to parent has been called into question based only on the fact they are blind. For more information on this important issue, please read the fact sheet.

We look forward to seeing you on February 12!

Please contact Stancil Tootle stootle@nfbga.org or Greg Aikens gaikens@nfbga.org with any questions about the Atlanta Seminar.

Questionnaire Study Blind Adults and Healthcare Providers

My name is Carmel and I am a research assistant with the Judgment and Decision Making Lab at the University of Texas at El Paso. In about a month the Judgment and Decision Making Lab will be conducting a study in the form of a questionnaire. The PI is a blind doctoral candidate conducting her dissertation research. We will be looking at blind and low vision adults and their experiences with healthcare providers (i.e. doctors, pharmacy technicians, health insurance agents).

All participants will be entered into a drawing to win an Amazon gift card. If you qualify for this study and are interested please contact the Judgment and Decision Making Lab via e-mail at utep.psyc.hcd@gmail.com or via phone at 915-747-8659.
If you know of anyone who qualifies and would be interested please share this message with them.
