Helen Keller Deaf-Blind Awareness Week
clear

Helen Keller Deaf-Blind Awareness Week
The last week of June is dedicated to Helen Keller Deaf-Blind Awareness Week, and the mission is to build deeper connections with people in the deaf-blind community. Connections begin by learning more about the conditions that cause Deaf-Blindness, such as Usher Syndrome, CHARGE syndrome and Stickler Syndrome, and by developing a better understanding of how people with these conditions thrive in their communities. Tennessee Retina dedicates this week to recognize our patients with these rare conditions, and we encourage everyone to explore these listed websites, experience the success stories and learn what resources are available to those with Deaf-Blind conditions.

"Very friendly staff, wife had an issue with her eyes, they helped us feel comfortable and put us at ease, waiting areas were spacious and did not feel cramped with people... we did not wait long to be seen. Staff was knowledgeable and friendly and positive atmosphere."
