Lakeshore Foundation: A leader in advocacy, programming, and research in adapted physical activity

The Lakeshore Foundation is an organization aimed instilling lifelong wellness in people with disabilities and those with chronic health conditions through a variety of means. The organization provides its members opportunities both within their Birmingham, Alabama facility and out in their respective communities to learn and practice physical activities, sports, and recreational activities. I had the chance to interview two people directly involved in the Lakeshore Foundation.  Beth Curry is the Chief Program Officer and works with the physical activity programs. Beth earned her Masters of Physical Therapy from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 1984 before pursuing a career in healthcare. The other interviewee is Lisa Hillborn, who serves as the director or recreation and athletics. Within the interview we discuss how the Lakeshore Foundation came to be, how they work with adapted physical activity specialists throughout the nation, their involvement with the Olympics and Paralympics, and their endeavors in advocacy and research.
