NADTC is working with the American Foundation for the Blind to develop an information brief on “Aging, Vision Loss and Transportation." We want to invite transportation experts to review our draft information brief and provide feedback on its usefulness and relevance to transportation programs. Join us for a discussion! Registration is limited to 30 to foster a small group discussion. All registrants will receive a draft copy of the information brief.
If you are interested in participating, please register as soon as possible to reserve your space! RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org
