TTD travels: Washington, D.C.

Last week, Everett and I had the chance to visit our nation’s capitol on behalf of Prevent Blindness Iowa. This year, Everett is serving as the Youth Ambassador, and as such, has been advocating for the organization. This trip coincided with Prevent Blindness’s  national summit on vision and eye health, and was definitely a great experience for both of us!
