The BINA organization is hosting a Disability and Rehabilitation Expo at the Palace Hall in Brooklyn on Tuesday, May 24, from 6 to 9 p.m. There will be a broad range of vendors representing a wide spectrum of the disabilities and the rehabilitation system. To date, they include acute, sub-acute, and post-acute adult and pediatric inpatient facilities; leading outpatient therapists and centers, including home based therapy providers; and home care agencies. Medicaid enrollment specialists, attorneys, and agencies with a range of services to the disabled will be on hand to answer questions. In addition, there will be companies specializing in medical transports, home modifications, vehicle accessibility, and driver education for the disabled. The non-profit sector will be represented with a group that provides sports and outdoor opportunities for the disabled and an association for individuals with hydrocephalus.
A special feature of the expo will be the Stroke and Brain Injury Research and Clinical Trials section, where researchers and scientists from leading facilities and hospitals will share information on current research projects and clinical trials and answer questions from attendees.
Those who have a disability or who are caring for a family member of any age with a disability are welcome to attend. For information, call (718) 645-6400 or go to binausa.org/expo.
