WBRC would like to wish everyone a very happy and healthy 2014.

There were several big events for WBRC in 2013 including the launch of WBRC's new iProgram, the topping out ceremony for our new building (B500), a staff member retiring after 31 years of service, a huge update to our WBRC Website, and the progression of B500 Construction.  As we prepare for 2014, lets take a look back at 2013 via links to some of our favorite WBRC Blog posts from 2013:

The Western Blind Rehabilitation Center (WBRC) is a 27-bed residential facility located at the Menlo Park Division of the VA Palo Alto Health Care System. Approximately two hundred veterans and active duty service members of all ages participate in the program each year. More than three quarters have usable vision for which specialized treatment is provided. Adjusting to and managing visual impairment is the major objective of the program. If you are in the area and are interested in a site visit, please call (650) 614-9952 to make arrangements.
