TESTIMONIAL

“I have attended the American Indian Disability Summit for four years. This event has helped me gather medical references that I use to this day. I have attended a workshop for Nutritionist presentation and they accept my medical insurance so I have build a great long lasting relationship with them as a patient. I enjoy the lunch and networking with different booths. I got in touch with Hanger that helps with my diabetic shoes and they accept my medical insurance. This event has allowed me to make new friends and meet up with friends that I haven’t seen in while. I enjoy the raffles and support this event provides. It allows me learn tips, tools, and strategies to get through the hard times and is full of laughs and fun people. Thank you.
