February:Retinitis Pigmentosa

So, I was asked by Elijah who is raising CCI Dembre if I was learning about different causes of blindness in school. The answer to that Elijah is not right now. Someday, that might be a lot of fun. Right now though I'm just doing a study on RP because February is RP awareness month.

Retinitis Pigmentosa Fact #22

We already know that there are different gene mutations that can cause RP, but the disease can evolve differently in patients that have the exact same gene mutation. (source)

  1. Very interesting! I haven't really studied many causes for blindness. I am trying to learn as much as I can about common physical and cognitive disabilities. I want to be able to confidently talk about how assistance dogs help people and be able to communicate effectively with CCI graduates. Thanks for the answer.
