May is National Mobility Awareness Month

National Mobility Awareness Month is when we encourage people with disabilities to embody the spirit of Life Moving Forward by raising awareness of the mobility solutions available in your community. The National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA) and MobilityWorks are taking part in celebrating the Annual National Mobility Awareness Month.
