United Spinal Association was proud to co-sponsor the 6th Annual ‘From Within’ health conference for women living with physical disabilities hosted by Independence Care System (ICS) on Saturday, July 24, 2015 at John Jay College in NYC.
Women from all around the tristate area attended this official event of ADA25 NYC, including ICS members, long-term disability rights advocates, university students, professionals, mothers, daughters and sisters—women with disabilities from all walks of life.
Other co-sponsors included the Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities, the MS Society, and the CUNY Coalition for Students with Disabilities (CCSD).
This year’s From Within was the largest ever, with over 150 guests attending the event. Victor Calise, Commissioner for the Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities, a former employee of United Spinal and a supporter of ICS and From Within for many years, was invited to speak at this year’s conference.
