Women’s Health & Vision Symposium
Where there is care, there is hope.

The Women’s Health & Vision Symposium presented by Heads Up Technologies was filled with empowerment and encouragement! This year’s theme, vision caregiving, focused on the invaluable support provided by caregivers to those with low vision or vision loss. With an aging population and a growing number of individuals facing low vision challenges, understanding the physical and mental health burden on caregivers is essential as it touches us all at some point in our lives. Keynote speaker, Dr. Melanie Truong-Le, beautifully articulated the journey of caregiving, and the panelists all gave insight to their personal stories relating to the topic.

Thank you to all our panelists! Dr. Melanie Truong-Le, Dr. Lauren J. Bailey, Dorothy Jones, and Dr. Layla Lohmann.

Thank you to our sponsors! Champion Sponsor: Heads Up Technologies; Guardian Sponsor: FORVIS.

Sequins & Sneakers Spectacle
An inspiring evening in San Antonio!

What a night of edutainment! It was an evening full of sequins, sneakers and edutainment at the Sequins & Sneakers Spectacle presented by the Gordon Hartman Family Foundation as we honored Kelly Haight. With Blue Skies at the San Antonio Botanical Gardens, sequins sparkling everywhere, and the euphonious voice of entertainer Patsy Torres, guests were inspired by the work and impact of Kelly Haight who has touched so many lives and worked endlessly to improve vision care. He encouraged guests to push the limits of technology in the vision space and emphasized with your support Prevent Blindness Texas can continue to grow, and “we can turn the table of education, we can get more and more people to see better and to have a better life!” Thank you to all who joined us at the event, it was a pleasure to sing, dance, and learn with the San Antonio community!
