Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation to hold a webinar on air travel for wheelchair users


SHORT HILLS, N.J., March 13, 2019 — The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation Paralysis Resource Center (PRC) announced it will be hosting a FREE webinar on March 25 that focuses on providing information for wheelchair users to improve their flight experiences and how to plan accordingly for accessibility challenges when traveling via airplane.

Flying is often a necessary means of travel for work, vacation, or family matters. Air travel opens up a world of opportunities.  This webinar covers topics spanning the entire travel experience, from booking to baggage claim, wheelchair assistance in the airport, using the bathroom during flight, equipment damage and much more.

Hosting the session is John Morris, a field expert and advocate for accessible travel. Drawing from his experience of nearly one million miles flown as a wheelchair user, he educates people with disabilities through his accessible travel website and advises companies through his consultancy work.

This webinar will be hosted from 12 p.m – 1p.m. EDT.  Registration for the webinar can be found on the Reeve Foundation’s events page.
