Every1In Wellness & Abilities Fair Offers Inspiration for Those With Disabilities (and Without)
First-ever Milwaukee event offers impressive lineup of speakers and health-oriented topics, all aimed at promoting inclusivity for oft-ignored minority group.
By: Hope Instilled
An inaugural Sept. 30 event aims to explode stigmas around mental and physical disabilities, and open the doors of "inclusion" for this too-long ignored population.
The Every1In Wellness & Abilities Fair, held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Baird Center, 400 W. Wisconsin Ave., will feature 12 speakers, and more than 50 vendors. The unifying theme is improving quality of life for all, whether able-bodied or coping with disabilities.
"This event is unlike any before," said Jory Pradjinski, founder of event presenter Hope Instilled. "Our goal is to shine the light on people with disabilities, a group with immense potential that has been pushed into the shadows for too long. The tremendous variety of health information available is useful for anyone engaged in health and wellness. There's something for everyone."
