We are proud to announce our new partnership with Readers Digest Partners for Sight Foundation RDPFS. The collabo- ration will enhance our SupportSightSM program with access to the additional re- sources that RDPFS offers. It will allow both organizations to assist more people in the vision impaired community through education and provide them with important information about tools and assistive technology that will empower them to remain independent. Nationally less than 10 of people with vision loss actually access low vision or vision rehabilitation services says Susan Olivo executive director of RDPFS. A general lack of awareness keeps people from going for comprehensive eye exams and accessing appropriate help and services. We are honored to partner with MVRF and help them continue and enhance the valuable and informative SupportSightSM program. About RDPFS RDPFS is dedicated to increasing the self- reliance and dignity of blind and visually impaired persons. They believe these indi- viduals should have the tools and resources necessary to lead independent productive lives. Through their support of non-profit or- ganizations that share this philosophy they are making the world easier to navigate for thousands of people every day. They are also the publisher of Select Editions Large Type books and a proud co-sponsor of visionaware.org the premier online re- source for people coping with vision loss. www.rdpfs.org April 2015 SupportSightSM Kickoff Thank you to everyone who attended our SupportSightSM seminars in Southampton Elizabethtown PA.
