New Life Sponsors the Lex Frieden Awards

New Life Medical Equipment, a New Life Industries, LLC. company, was proud to sponsor the Lex Frieden Awards on October 27th, 2016 in Houston, TX.

The Lex Frieden Award was given to multiple individuals and companies who showed great leadership and commitment to helping their employees and co-workers with disabilities achieve their goals and excel in their work environment. Since 1979, the Governor’s Committee has worked to get employers to hire and retain employees with disabilities.

The winners of the 2016 Lex Frieden Employment Awards were honored at a luncheon that was co-hosted by the Governor’s Committee on People with Disabilities, the Houston Mayor’s Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities and the Greater Houston Business Leadership Network.

Brent Shiver, Ph.D., an Advisory Software Engineer on the Accessibility Technology & Innovation team at IBM Research was the guest speaker for the event. Dr. Shiver has been deaf since age two and currently serves as a Board Member with the Texas School for the Deaf Foundation and is an assistant wrestling coach at the Texas School for the Deaf.

New Life had a great time at the luncheon and we were extremely honored to be a part of such a great organization.
