Speaker inspires at Disability Employment Awareness Month event

The National Disability Employment Awareness Month Expo and Speaker event in the John H. Ammon Medical Education Center on Tuesday, Oct. 25, featured Ewa Okla, Ph.D., manager of the Process Analytics team at Cigna Insurance, who delivered a moving presentation about her life journey living with a physical disability as a result of arthrogryposis multiplex congenita disease. Watch the full presentation here.

The Expo event in the lobby of the John H. Ammon Medical Education Center provided information about the services, resources and support available in our community for individuals with disabilities.

“Ewa is a great example of how we can leverage the skills and talents of individuals with disabilities at all levels of the organization,” said Dana Beckton, director of Diversity and Inclusion. “Her transparency is inspirational to everyone, regardless of ability. This is the second year we’ve held the expo, and we learn something new every time. There are any number of organizations that provide needed services and unfortunately, not enough people know about them.”
