SUPPORT & NETWORKING GROUPS

Spectrios Institute’s support group is here for everyone with vision loss.  Everyone is welcome and you do not need to be a Spectrios patient to attend.  This group is here for you, if there is a topic you would like to see covered, let us know and we can add it to the agenda.  (email Susanna at PerrettS@Spectrios.org)

The group is moderated by Leah Gerlach M.S., C.R.C. a counselor with extensive experience in the field of low vision rehabilitation.  Living with vision loss herself, she is able to share her personal insights and professional experience.  Her goal and passion is to help people with vision loss attain success.

She will host monthly call-in support groups on the second Wednesday of the month from 7:00 – 8:00 CT.
