Sorry for the break I’ve had to take – with finals, and work, and my fellowship coming to and end, time has been a little tight for me! I’m hoping to get three posts up this week, and then things should go back to normal after that.
Last week, my Health Activist Fellowship (which I talked about here and here) had its finale, the Health Activist Expo. It was held downtown at the August Wilson Center, and each fellow had a table to display a poster and talk about the project that we’d each been working on. There was a great turnout – more than 100 people came to find out about our projects, and there were even some members of the media there!
It was really exciting to be a part of the fellowship, and to have so many people show interest in what I’ve been working on!
In 2018, I hope to start talking to local businesses about accessibility, and helping them understand the importance of an accessible entrance for people like me. I want to be an ally to these businesses, not an adversary!
