Here is a sample of what the Health Committee is starting to Receive.

Several of us know Cheryl Reed from different committees and work over the years.

Hello Bill,
I am contacting you to support accessible labelling for individuals who are blind, visually impaired or otherwise print disabled.  As a director of a low vision clinic with nearly 40 years of experience, I am well aware of the issues encountered by individuals who cannot access information related to medication.  Often this impacts individuals who are taking many prescription medications and the inability to accurate order medications, identify prescriptions and read directions and precautions can lead to life-threatening consequences.  Additionally, managing medications is critical to maintaining ones independence and avoiding the transition to an assisted living or nursing home residence.
Years ago you coached my son, Ian Reed, when he played youth soccer.  Thank you for your long and diverse commitment to our community.
