Meet the Blind event aims to educate public

October 1, 2013

The National Federation of the Blind has designated October as Meet the Blind Month and today the Starkville chapter is holding an event from 9 a.m. to noon at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church offering information and resources to those affected by any capacity of blindness.

Beverly Hammett, vice president of the Starkville chapter, has been blind for six and a half years. She became blind after an antibiotic for staph infection caused her blood sugar to rise so high her eye hemorrhaged. She said she wanted people to know life continues after going blind.
