10 Most Memorable EIMB Moments of 2015
Serving as the primary author of the Education in Motion Blog (EIMB) has become one of my most treasured responsibilities. From EIMB's inception almost two years ago, the primary goal is to provide clinicians, rehabilitation technology suppliers, end users, caregivers, and other interested individuals with information and resources designed to improve people's lives. Our posts have been read and shared by people all over the world. At Sunrise Medical, we are truly humbled by the positive feedback we have received from our readers.
As we prepare to close the book on the year 2015, I can't help but look back on this year with fondness. In no particular order, here are the 10 Most Memorable EIMB Moments of 2015:
Interviewing Jessica Patterson – From the moment I met Jess at the National Complex Rehabilitation Technology Leadership and Advocacy Conference, I knew she was a world changer. I was thrilled when she agreed to share her Wheel Life Story with our readers.
Advocating on Capitol Hill – Walking through the halls of Congress and meeting with individuals who have the ability to influence legislation was powerful. I look forward to going back in 2016.
The Kennedy Mile – Sharing Kennedy's story was very personal to me, because, as I mentioned in the post, she is the niece of one of my childhood friends. Kennedy is such an amazing little girl with a tremendous support system made up of a loving family and countless friends.
Volunteering at the Warrior Games – Serving as a water girl during for the gold medal wheelchair basketball game is something I will never forget!
Introducing Sunrise Family Members – In the "Pull Up a Seat" series I had the pleasure of introducing our readers to Sandy Campos (Senior Manager of North American Customer Service) and Maya Solorzano-Chavez (Latin America Clinical Educator).
Awesome Guest Bloggers – From Sunrise Medical team members to industry icons such as Weesie Walker, EIMB readers had the opportunity to learn valuable information from our guest bloggers.
Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the ADA – The 25th Anniversary of President George H. W. Bush signing the Americans with Disability Act was celebrated on July 25, 2015. There were a number of fantastic celebrations throughout the country this year including the one I attended in Washington, DC.
Sharing Resources – From tips to training young children to drive a power wheelchair, to information on cortical visual impairments, to Halloween costume ideas, to adaptive fishing resources provided by guest blogger Cindi Petito...EIMB posts in 2015 were jam-packed with great information.
Welcoming Switch-It to the Sunrise Family – In April 2015 Switch-It, Inc. officially became part of the Sunrise Family. Robert Norton (Director of Sales for Specialty Controls) did a wonderful job explaining the differences in types of switches in his guest blog post.
Providing Solutions Through Sunrise Products – Each member of the Sunrise Medical team takes our mission of "Improving People's Lives" very seriously. We strive to design and manufacture products to do just that. In 2015, we were able to share details of exciting new products including the Zippie X'CAPE, ZM-310, Quickie 5R, Quickie 7R with Freestyle Back, Dual Pro™, Ctrl+5, and JAY J3 Posterior Deep back.
We look forward to seeing you in 2016!
