Guest Editorial — JVIB Extract

Extract: While preparing this special issue of the Journal of Visual Impairment and #0038; Blindness (JVIB), we had the occasion to meet with consumer groups of people with low vision. At the 10th annual conference of the National Organization for Albinism and Hypopigmentation (NOAH) in Atlanta, Georgia, 670 children and adults with albinism, parents and relatives of people with albinism, and invited professionals gathered to learn from each other and to gain a better understanding of the educational, social, and other possible effects of albinism on individuals and their families, as well as the visual impacts. This conference was not only about information sharing, it was about building friendships, leaving day-to-day questions from the inquiring public behind, and just having fun. Attendees were welcomed to participate in what President Mike McGowan called the 'albinism community.'<
