Fullerton Community Center Offers Free Seminar on Vision Loss - Aug. 17

Fullerton, CA - Few things in life are as important as our eyesight.  The ability to see a child’s smile, to experience the many hues of a summer sunset or enjoy reading a good book is among our greatest treasures.

The Fullerton Community Center will host a free informative presentation to learn about macular degeneration and other vision impairments on Monday, August 17, at 10 a.m., presented by Paul Brennan, an Independent Living Skills instructor from the Dayle McIntosh Center’s Aging with Vision Loss Program (AVL).

Brennan will discuss the impact of vision loss and how the AVL Program makes a difference every day through its low vision programs and services such as ILS training, assistive technology, peer support/advocacy and information and referrals.  The presentation will also address how the free, federally-funded AVL, program strives to identify and address specific needs and goals related to living life independently with vision loss.

Space will be limited; and preregistering is recommended by calling the Fullerton Community Center at (714) 738-6305 or Paul Brennan directly at the Dayle McIntosh Center at (714) 621-3300.

The Fullerton Community Center is located at 340 W. Commonwealth Ave., west of Harbor Boulevard, in Amerige Park.  For more information about programs and services at the Fullerton Community Center, call (714) 738-6575.
