NSU's College of Optometry underwrote a season of  "Cooking Without
Looking". "We not only want to underwrite "Cooking Without Looking", we want
to become involved on many other levels as well," said David S. Loshin,
O.D., Ph.D., dean at NSU's College of Optometry. "For example, we'd like the
shows' hosts to demonstrate their cooking skills for our students as well as
our patients in our low vision rehabilitation program."



The mission of Florida Division of Blind Services is to ensure blind and
visually impaired persons living in Florida have the tools, support, and
