NMEDA Celebrates National Mobility Awareness Month

The start of May is also the start of National Mobility Awareness Month, led by the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA).

NMEDA orange-themed artwork says, "Find Your Next Adventure," with a young woman in a manual wheelchair in front of an accessible vehicle with a ramp.

This year’s theme is “Find Your Fit,” which “reinforces the notion that there is an automotive mobility solution for everyone,” said Monique McGivney, Chair of NMEDA’s Industry & Public Relations Committee, in an Awareness Month video.

NMEDA has created a dedicated Web site for National Mobility Awareness Month, with resources including social media graphics, gifs, posters, flyers, and a guidebook to share; Stories of Independence, which shares real-life photos and stories of people who use mobility equipment; a National Mobility Awareness Month fact sheet; a mobility dealer locator; and a consumer newsletter sign-up opportunity.
