Crossville Chronicle – October 2019: Crossville. Tennessee residents first met Liz Trauernicht, President of the Macular Degeneration Foundation (MDF), when she spoke at the 2014 VIS (Visually Impaired Support Group of Cumberland County) Group’s biennial InSight on Vision. She gave a rousing demonstration of her care for those afflicted with vision loss, especially those diagnosed with AMD.
While Liz was staying in Crossville, she visited the Fair Park Senior Center, bringing info about AMD and leading a lively discussion. Linda Simmons shares, “Since 2014, VIS has been most fortunate to have received tremendous support and loyalty from Liz and the MDF. We can’t be more earnest relating to our community how the MDF has been so important to the VIS Group’s ability of providing important programs for the blind and visually impaired; through the VIS On-Loan Equipment program, the printing of our Resource Guide, monthly support meetings, InSight on Vision, community programs, and monetary support of the TN Council of the Blind and the TN Organization of the Deaf/Blind.”
