Dr. Deb Plate has been involved with Miss Wheelchair USA over the past several years as their chief judge and medical director. It is a wonderful event that occurs in Cuyahoga Falls, OH!
It typically has live streamed each year and this year there is a surprise for all involved – where it will be taped to be played nationally – she can’t discuss details but it’s pretty exciting!
She is looking for perhaps a few female rising M2 students who might be interested in a week of community service! Typically, each year she asks for “production assistants” who are paired with a contestant for the week (young woman in wheelchairs) and it is really fun to watch the relationships form!
It’s a packed week – and the commitment starts from Sunday, July 10th through the following Sunday Morning. There are events every day all week long so expectation is that the assistant/volunteer would be present 10 a.m. into the evening with the actual performance from Thursday – Saturday evening and a breakfast on Sunday morning to send off the winner and all other participants!
If interested, please email Dr. Plate at PlateD2@ccf.org and include your name, year and medical pathway. This is a great opportunity to add to your CV!
