On May 15th-17th, New Life Medical Equipment served as an exhibitor for the 2016 Annual Texas Rehabilitation Association Conference hosted by the Texas Rehabilitation Association. The event was held at the Hilton Galveston Island Resort in Galveston, Tx.
The three day conference was filled with many activities and sessions that gave participants the chance to learn more about vocational rehabilitation and how to promote rehabilitation for Texans. The conference kicked off with a welcoming speech by the TRA President, Lori Lawson. An ice cream social was held later that day which gave participants the chance to mingle and win a few door prizes. We wrapped up the first day with the President’s Reception where country singer Chrystal Vision performed.
The TRA Awards Luncheon was held on the 16th, followed by many great breakout sessions with presentations about vocational rehabilitation, interviewing, rehabilitating others, and many more. The conference ended with a Southern style breakfast buffet and two presentations discussing employment barriers and ethics.
The 2016 TRA Conference gave New Life the chance to showcase our medical equipment and devices, as well as help spread awareness and promote better independence for individuals with disabilities in the work place as well as in their everyday lives.
