The NKBA Manhattan Chapter recently held a "Beverages & Bewilderment?" event. It was completely virtual. At the start of the event, Living In Place Institute Co-Founder Erik Listou instructed everyone how to put on the special gloves and vision simulating glasses, provided by the sponsor Gringer & Sons. Then everyone, with their new temporary challenges, to open their favorite beverage and snacks. It was fun, but more importantly, helped everyone understand how changing abilities can affect us in our everyday lives. 

Read what Julie Schuster wrote to us after the event: 

"I am the current Chair of Programs for the NKBA Manhattan chapter, as well as being a CLIPP certified professional and interior designer. As such, I have the responsibility of creating programming during this pandemic that engages and educates our membership in an online format; a challenging proposition! As a CLIPP professional designer and Ambassador, I was familiar with the portion of our training when we all experienced creating a meal while dealing with the restrictions of vision and physical impairments that our training included.  So the opportunity to share that experience with our membership was one that I jumped on when it was proposed by Louie.  As expected, it was not only fun but enlightening as well.  I am so proud to have been the first chapter to present this through the NKBA.  I strongly recommend it for KBIS in the online format that you currently have planned, as well as in-person for going forward!

Please feel free to reach out to me to discuss any questions or to clarify.
