Intersection: Braille Association, Mobile Dentist & Jared Violin
For more than 50 years volunteers with the Braille Association of Mid Florida produced textbooks– and picture books- for visually impaired kids.
But now the volunteers have to move out of their temporary home at Longwood Elementary School, and until they find a new home the machines they use to make braille textbooks and embossed images … will go into storage.
We talk to the Braille Association president Mariann Witengier about the work they do and their search for a new home.
Then, a dentist who takes a mobile clinic to Central Florida schools to treat kids and teach them not to fear the dentist’s chair. A conversation with Mike Allen from the Orange Blossom Family Health Clinic.
And Jared Burnett does not look like your typical violinist. He’s been described as Fabio-esque. Burnett stops by to perform some songs on his signature electric violin, and talk about his journey from Lakeland to the bright lights of Broadway.
