The theme of the fourth annual Houston Area Insight Expo, scheduled to take place April 25 at the University of Houston, is “Looking Into Leisure.” The event will address leisure-time pursuits for the visually impaired through workshops on audio-described venues, book services and clubs, outdoor activities, martial arts and physical training, crafts and gardening, ham and Internet radio, fine arts and music and dance. In addition to the workshops, a variety of vendors and organizations serving the visually impaired community will be displaying their information and products for attendees.

Also: The Multiple Sclerosis Eye Center for Analysis, Research and Education (MS Eye CARE), a partnership between the University Eye Institute at the University of Houston College of Optometry and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, is celebrating its 10-year anniversary. The center has been a leader in making eye care an integral part of the MS diagnosis and treatment process.
