Lack of Appropriate Clothing Can Hinder People with Disabilities

There are many important events in a person’s life, including weddings, graduations, school dances and job interviews. The clothing industry has long profited from these events and the special clothing they require. However, according to new research from the University of Missouri, approximately 30 million Americans living with mobility challenges and impairments lack the appropriate clothing required for social engagements, work and exercise. Following this new study researchers suggest that apparel manufacturers could play a vital role in helping people navigate social barriers by providing more accessible clothing options.

Ohio-Based ProMedica Health System Celebrates One-Year Anniversary for Its Grocery Market and Announces Plans to Expand

One year ago ProMedica opened a full-service grocery market in an area of Toledo that was labeled a food desert due to the lack of grocery stores and healthy food providers. Today leaders from ProMedica announced plans to expand its services beyond the grocery market to offer a variety of community programs including cooking and nutrition classes, health screenings, financial counseling and job training. According to philanthropist and business community leader Russell Ebeid, ProMedica is "writing a new chapter in the way healthcare systems collaborate with neighborhoods and communities to improve health."

75 Years Later, Pearl Harbor Still Teaching Lessons of War

As the nation prepares to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the attack that precipitated the United States’ entry into World War II, Pearl Harbor still endures as a monument to the suffering and sacrifice of American servicemen in the Second World War. The blitz on the Hawaiian naval base was the culmination of an increasingly strained pre-war relationship between the United States and Japan, according to Kurt Piehler, associate professor of history at Florida State University and director of the Institute on World War II and the Human Experience.
