The Sacramento Bee: "Blind Student Has No Trouble Visualizing a Doctorate in Chemistry"

Categories: In the News

"Even the most adept chemistry student will spend an evening hopelessly staring at models of double helixes, polypeptides and ribonucleic acids. Not Henry Wedler. Blind from birth, Wedler, who is working on hisdoctorate in organic chemistry at UC Davis, sees these complex structures in his mind and occasionally with his hands. Wedler, popularly known as 'Hoby,' is one of six students honored by Learning Ally, a nonprofit organization that makes specialized audio books for people with visual impairments or reading disabilities." http://www.sacbee.com/2011/09/12/3902311/student-has-no-trouble-visualizing.html
