IEHP Presents Disabilities Expo Saturday in San Bernardino

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. — Inland Empire Health Plan (IEHP) continues empowering people with disabilities to live independently by partnering with the Inland Empire Disabilities Collaborative (IEDC) to present the Disabilities Expo, set for Saturday, March 24, 10am to 4pm, at the National Orange Show Events Center in San Bernardino.

More than 100 exhibitors will showcase the latest products and services for the disability and senior community. Topics will include health, assistive technology, transportation, recreation, employment, youth and senior services, and more. The IEDC anticipates that the Expo will draw more than 5,000 attendees, including people with disabilities of all ages, their families, caregivers and service Providers.

This year’s entertainment line-up features aerialist and best-selling author, Jen Bricker, who believes that “everything is possible.” Despite being born without legs, Bricker became Illinois state champion in gymnastics and later gained fame by performing alongside international pop icon, Britney Spears.

Entertainment will also include a wheelchair motocross clinic, a stunt bike show, a wheelchair basketball game, yoga, music and more.

“At IEHP, we are proud to participate in the Inland Empire Disabilities Expo,” said IEHP
Chief Executive Officer Dr. Bradley P. Gilbert. “Our involvement reflects our continuous efforts to offer more wellness options to our Members and all persons with disabilities.”

IEHP led the way in the creation of the IEDC in 2006. Today, the IEDC brings together more than 1,200 service Providers from regional organizations that serve people with disabilities and seniors.

With support from this network, the IEDC presents the bi-yearly Expo to the community, promoting equal opportunity, universal access and full participation of people with disabilities.
