FYI – Survey Opportunity
NOAH has joined with many other organizations and companies in a collaborative project to collect data and information about the experiences of adults who are blind or have low vision during the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal is to understand how the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the lives of adults with visual impairments and to identify solutions for these challenges. This survey is open to anyone over age 18 with a visual impairment in the United States through 8 am ET on April 13.
