Virtual NOAHCon 2020 July 9-12, 2020 A Vision Beyond 2020

Beyond the Conference

One of the most exciting parts about using a virtual model for NOAHCon 2020 is that the conference sessions will serve as a springboard to ongoing educational content and community connections for the remainder of 2020 and beyond. While future content is still under development, below you will find a list of potential topics for post-conference presentations and interactive sessions.


Upcoming Sessions:

Low Vision Driving Workshop

One-Day Virtual Workshop
Saturday, September 12th, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM

This workshop is intended for low vision individuals who are considering exploring the driving privilege. Obtaining a driver’s license that requires the use of a bioptic lens system involves the cooperation and services of a multi-disciplinary team of professionals. Parents or spouses who might offer direct or indirect related services or emotional support are also encouraged to attend.
