Memorial Hospital Women's Imaging
By: Jennifer Lynn Adams
I recently shared my Envision Diversity Workshop at Memorial Regional Hospital South in Hollywood Florida, in the Women's Imaging Department. The Women's Imaging Leadership Staff brought me in to address scheduling, accessibility and mobility assistance for the Women's Imaging Patients who are extra-abled. When I entered the room I was greeted with many friendly faces! We were all ladies in the room and the workshop was held very informally. Our interactions were so mutually empowering! I began the workshop by sharing my story and adventures as an adaptive athlete. Then I shared some nuggets of wisdom and provided suggestions about providing quality costumer care for patients who are extra-abled, such as: asking patients if they have any special accommodation needs during scheduling, having patient accommodation needs on their chart then staff is able to prepare accommodations prior to patient arrival. After I shared, the staff asked my some questions that allowed me to share more specifically to their department needs. Open communication was really flowing in the room. We all came to some very helpful conclusions, and a plan of action for the departments costumer care needs. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to meet with and share my story and message with these amazing women!

It was a great honor to be invited as a guest to the Dynamic Women of Miami event. The event was presented by Miami Magazine, hosted by India Hicks and held at Turnberry Isle, a very classy resort in the heart of Aventura. Women from all walks of life were honored and celebrated for their great achievements.
I was invited as a guest speaker at the 3rd annual Ladyfest Miami this past weekend. About 40 women attended my seminar "Discover Your Identity." We had a great time together! There were women from all walks of life in the room. I started our time together by telling my story and highlighting experiences when I felt unempowered and experiences when I felt empowered. After I shared my story I opened the forum to dialog and questions from the ladies in the room. It was refreshing to hear their stories.
Memorial Rehabilitation Institute
Memorial Rehabilitation Institute recently became a partner with SHIFT. I was connected with Memorial Rehabilitation Institute a little over a year ago when I first moved to Miami Fl from Tacoma Washington. Through a series of destiny coincidences the staff at MRI and I were acquainted and I was invited to perform a dance at an Rehab outreach event last year. The MRI staff continued inviting me to share my message and talents at there events. Soon a partnership began to blossom which has provided the opportunity for a powerful alliance between SHIFT and MRI.

While in the moment of meeting these powerhouse women I felt the energy of destiny surrounding us. IAMADAPTIVE is a movement that celebrates the shine of the global extra-abled community.
