      Welcome to the inaugural issue of The White Cane, the quarterly magazine of the Iowa Department for the Blind.

      We are excited to be launching this publication to better inform our readers about our breadth of services we offer blind and visually impaired Iowans. This publication replaces several newsletters the department has issued over the years.
      We are out every day working to help empower those with significant vision loss to live productive and full lives.
      There have been many changes at the department, including our new website and logo and our redesigned building. We have also welcomed new staff members to help expand our reach throughout Iowa.
      We hope you enjoy this first issue and continue to support the IDB’s efforts.
