In Syracuse or Ecuador, adaptive design helps people with disabilities participate more fully in daily activities

Adaptive design means creating ways that ensure products, buildings or landscapes are accessible to people with disabilities. Explaining this concept, which was studied on a recent service trip with Upstate students to Ecuador, are Upstate assistant professor of physical therapy Erin Wentz, PhD, and Connor McGough, the adaptive design program coordinator from the nonprofit community organization ARISE. Learn about related volunteer opportunities through ARISE by contacting McGough at 315-671-5104 or emailing him at cmcgough@ariseinc.org
