Posted @withregram • @goodshepherdrehab Good Shepherd Rehabilitation is proud to announce that we have been awarded $25,000 as part of the @reevefoundation National Paralysis Resource Center (NPRC) 2023 Direct Effect 2nd Cycle Quality of Life grants.

The grant will support continuing to provide specially trained exercise physiologist services at Optimal Fitness at Good Shepherd in Allentown — the only adaptive fitness center within a 95-mile radius of the Lehigh Valley.

Guss has been an Optimal Fitness at Good Shepherd member since his spinal cord injury in 2023. When Guss started at the gym, he had trouble walking on his own; today, he’s a dedicated gym member who is able to walk without an assistive device.

“I’m starting to get addicted here,” Guss said of Optimal Fitness. “I come twice a week and spend an additional hour to use the electric bike. I love coming here to work hard and get stronger.”

Learn more about the grant and details about Optimal Fitness.

How can we start making healthcare more accessible and inclusive for disabled people of color? @citchensprucetameka of the Michigan Disability Rights Coalition  @my_mdrc shares these 3 strategies:
1. Make sure the physical space is accessible, including things such
as wheelchair scales. 
2. Check your own biases – we all have biases towards people who are
different. 
3.  Learn about how different systems impact communities of color and
people with disabilities. 
Alongside Tyra Randle @tyra_symone and Nila Morton @nilanmorton, Tameka presented “Combating Racism and Ableism in Healthcare” at
Reeve Summit 2024, in Washington, D.C.
