Complete the American Foundation for the Blind's "Journey Forward" Survey
Posted on July 23, 2021
The American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) wants to better understand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on those who are blind, have low vision, or are deafblind. We will then use this information to guide our work in creating a world of no limits for those who are visually impaired. On July 13, AFB launched a study titled Journey Forward: Recovery from the COVID-19 Pandemic by Blind and Low Vision Adults. We invite U.S. adults to share their experiences by taking a 30-45 minute survey. Twenty random individuals who complete the survey will be selected to receive $20 Amazon gift cards. U.S. adults who are visually impaired may also opt to sign up to take part in a focus group and/or be interviewed. The study closes August 9, 2021.
We want our study sample to be representative of U.S. adults who are blind, have low vision, or are deafblind. Please help us by sharing this announcement widely. If you know individuals who do not use the Internet, consider offering them assistance to complete the survey by reading it to them or having a volunteer with your organization or company serve as a reader.
