Imagine trying to walk two blocks, complete with sidewalk sales tables, people sitting outside cafes talking on cellphones and enjoying coffee, and owners walking their dogs on leashes. No big deal, right? OK, then try doing it blindfolded.That’s what students in the University’s Department of Blindness and Low Vision Studies (BLVS) Orientation and Mobility (O&M) program did in late July on the streets of Philadelphia’s Chestnut Hill neighborhood.
The University’s Physician Assistant (PA) students participate annually in a hands-on pediatric workshop as an experimental learning component of the program’s physical diagnosis course.
