The Usher Syndrome Society is hosting a live storytelling series called Conversations With USH. The discussions will be guided by Rebecca Alexander, an award winning author, psychotherapist, extreme athlete, and disability advocate who is living with the rare disease, Usher syndrome (USH).

Usher syndrome is the most common genetic cause of combined deafblindness.

Rebecca will explore the musical experience with Brenden Sorensen (GCU Class of 2022), an accomplished composer and pianist who is progressively losing both his vision and hearing due to Usher syndrome.
