East Texas Macular Degeneration Support Group

ETMDSG was started in 1994 by Sandi Sanders Coates and her mother, Norma Jean Sanders, when they found that no one in the area could provide them with information about Macular Degeneration. The support group enabled them to meet others with MD as well as gain more information on the subject. Speakers include local doctors, assistive living experts, services for the blind, and more. The group meets four times a year from 10:30 a.m. to noon (12 p.m.) on the first Saturday of the month in March, May, July and September at Rosewood Estates, 506 Rice Road, Tyler, Texas. In 2019, this group will meet on March 2, June 1 and September 7 from 10:30 a.m. - noon (12 p.m.).
