Wheelchair clinic 2012 in partnership with the ILRC was a total success!
The ILRC hosted the Disabled Services Office Annual Wheelchair Clinic on Dec. 7, 2012. This year we had two local vendors who spent the day repairing over 12 of our disabled citizen’s manual and motorized chairs. This year we had a new request from several participants; safety restraints, so they can travel a little safer while being transported.
