The session will focus on the topic of “Disability and Travel.” This session will feature Linda McGowan, McGowan was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1983 and has mobilized in a wheelchair for more than 25 years. Linda’s decision to live her life and have MS just tag along has led her to travel on every continent, to more than 160 countries, including a climb on Mount Everest 2500 feet above base camp. Linda has written and published a book, “Travelling the World with MS in a Wheelchair.” She works as an advocate with seniors and people with disabilities and encouraged everyone to follow their dreams no matter how tiny those dreams may be.
