Dr. Bonnie Bergin is the originator of the service dog concept and President and Founder of Bergin University of Canine Studies. She will share how through inspiration and trial and error, she developed a system for finding the best canine match for people with physical and mental disabilities.

Although Janet LaBreck lost her vision by the age of 10, she never let that get in the way of reaching for her dreams. After serving as the Commissioner for the Massachusetts Commission for the Blind, Janet was appointed by President Obama in 2013 to be Commissioner of the Rehabilitation Services Administration within the US Dept of Education.
