Modern Disability: Life on Wheels

Oct 2, 2012, 12:05 PM
HPC2 Atrium

Join this brown-bag presentation by Gary Karp, internationally recognized public speaker, corporate trainer, facilitator, author and editor.


Gary Karp has been living — fully — with a T12 spinal cord injury since 1973, when he was injured in a fall from a tree at the age of 18.

For his unique and extensive contributions to disability awareness, in 2007 Gary was inducted into the Spinal Cord Injury Hall of Fame as a disability educator.

Since his injury, Gary earned a graduate degree in architecture, worked for 11 years in the presentation graphics industry as a designer and production manager, then began providing ergonomics training and consultation services to companies in the San Francisco Bay area, where he lives with his wife, Paula, and their yellow labrador retriever, Nava Leah.

He is the author of three books, all widely reviewed as definitive guides for people with disabilities:

"Life On Wheels: For the Active Wheelchair User"

"Choosing A Wheelchair: A Guide For Optimal Independence"

"Disability & the Art of Kissing"
