March 27: Disability Rights + Heart Health

WHAT IS A “RIGHT”?
How are rights for people with disabilities often violated? How can you protect your rights and the rights of your teammates? Join Bonnie Bomer of Indiana Disability Rights as we define a right, list some examples, and talk about how to protect your rights.

Bonnie is committed to advocating for the rights of people with disabilities. As an individual who is legally blind, she has had to advocate for herself and for her daughter (who also has a visual impairment). Bonnie has worked for Indiana Disability Rights (IDR) since 2004 when she began as an Advocacy Specialist.

HEART HEALTH
Dr. Nathan D. Lambert specializes in Heart & Vascular Care. He earned his medical degree from Indiana University School of Medicine and completed his internship and residency at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC. He trained afterwards as a fellow at Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, NC. He currently lives in Noblesville with his wife and three children. He loves snow skiing, IU basketball, and playing games with his family. (His younger sister, Lindsay Blythe, usually beats him).

Dr. Lambert is going to talk about heart health and small steps you can take that will have a big impact on your heart health! What you eat, your physical activity, and mental health all play a role in your heart health.

PERSONAL MISSION STATEMENTS
If you have a personal mission statement and have shared it with Elesia Yoon and Jeff Mohler, then join us for an after-show special. Join us as we record YOU reading your personal mission statements. Why? We will be using your great goals for future videos, promotions, and recruitment of new athletes to join Athlete Leadership University.
