Disability Awareness Talks

I hope each of you had a chance to pick up a copy of "Miracles and Moments of Grace: Inspiring Stories of Survival." The book has been a hot seller, the first edition has already been sold out! I finished reading the book and can assure you, it's well worth your time! Here's a link to the book's Facebook page:

This month, I sat on a panel for the Disability Awareness talk for medical students at The Ohio State University. I was asked to share with the students how my disability impacts my life so they would have a better idea of how to approach future patients with disabilities.  The panel consisted of approximately seven people encompassing a variety of disabilities including TBI, Cerebral Palsy, Autism and Paraplegia. I hope that our answers satisfied the questions presented by the medical students.

Also, last month I was the keynote speaker at the Ohio Statehouse for the Governor's Council on People with Disabilities. Below is my bio that was in the program for this annual meeting. I spoke to an audience of about a hundred people. I was so honored to have been asked to speak at this worthy event.
