She teaches the patient-doctor communication portion of the first-year curriculum at the college, is the instructor of record of the Low Vision/Ocular Disease Micro-Credential program, and she works with patients and students in primary care and low vision rehabilitation clinics.
Joseph Lovett
Award-winning documentary filmmaker and producer Joseph Lovett (“Going Blind: Coming Out of the Dark About Vision Loss”) has glaucoma. Over years of slowly losing his sight, he has become an important voice for public awareness of blindness, vision loss, and vision rehabilitation. “Prior to producing “Going Blind,” the world of blindness and vision rehabilitation was a secret world to me. Even now, I don’t pretend to be an expert but my understanding about this area is that information about it is woefully inadequate. The biggest concern I have is that not enough people are being referred for vision rehabilitation.” Joe will talk about patients’ access to information and low-tech solutions that are available on your phone or computer.
