“Thank you so much for your guest lecture on vision and vision impairment in older adults for our Essentials of Gerontological Nursing class….The guidance you provided on how to interact with people with vision impairment is invaluable and just what these undergraduate students need to help build their confidence and skill in becoming health care providers….Your presentation style is relaxed and humorous, and it really engages the students.”
