WBRC was happy to host visitors from the Blinded Veterans of the United Kingdom (UK) recently. The visitors, Vanessa Young and Steve Boswell, spent a week at the WBRC with a primary focus of learning about our Comprehensive Neurological Vision Rehabilitation (CNVR) and Orientation and Mobility (O&M) programs. The visit also allowed them time to get acquainted with all of the WBRC departments, attend a graduation ceremony, and to get to know our staff members and veterans. Mrs. Young and Mr. Boswell reported that the common purpose between the Blind Veterans of the UK and the VA Blind Rehabilitation Services (BRS) and WBRC was very much the same. They did note some differences, such as the WBRC programs for persons with traumatic brain injury and the power mobility program, which helped highlight new directions for their program. Persons interested in more information or a site visit of the WBRC can contact us at (650) 614-9952.
