About the facilitator(s)

Dr. Christine Roman-Lantzy was an Assistant Professor and Coordinator of the Program in Visual Impairment at Marshall University in S. Charleston, WV from 1999-2005. She is currently the Director of The Pediatric View Program at The Western Pennsylvania Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA.  She runs the CVI Resource Website, where she offers families and professionals a reliable method to contact her for information or support regarding children with CVI. She has been working in the field of visual impairment since 1973, first as an itinerant teacher and O&M specialist in the public schools and later, in university settings preparing future teachers of the visually impaired. Her training in medically fragile, high-risk infants led her to develop a parallel career as an infant development specialist in a neonatal intensive care setting. Her understanding of children with CVI is a result of the joining of her work in both educational and medical settings.
