On Thursday April 6, 2017 the Western Blind Rehabilitation Center staff supported the tenth annual The Art of Aging Gracefully Resource Fair at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco. This was the second year in a row that the WBRC participated in this event on California St in the Laurel Heights area of SF. The day was packed with speakers, presentations and activities open to the public. Over thirty organizations participated as well as twenty-four businesses. Included in this event was insights and opportunities to support active, creative aging.
The WBRC staff met with many residents from the bay area and provided resources and information about Blind Rehabilitation Services within the VA Healthcare System. There were great opportunities to network with the organizations and businesses at the event. These organizations and businesses were provided with brochures about the WBRC programs as well as information around how to approach those with a visual impairment.
