The Center of Excellence for Remote and Medically Under-Served Areas will hold its eighth annual Assistive Technology Expo on Nov. 7.
This year’s theme, “Coming Home,” will showcase innovations and services that can help individuals with disabilities, wounded warriors and older adults increase their independence or maintain quality of life.
Exhibits by national and local vendors will feature technologies such as mobility products, seating and positioning devices, hearing aids, digitized and synthesized speech-generating equipment, computer-based speech/communication software and daily living aids.
The event is scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on the St. Francis University campus.
An opening ceremony featuring keynote speaker Bryan Anderson, an Iraq war veteran and triple amputee, will be held at 9 a.m. at the John F. Kennedy Student Center.
