In this episode, I sat down with Dr. Darlene to discuss themes bigger than basketball. She's a Paralympic Gold Medalist going for another Gold in Tokyo later this summer, but Darlene's real "wheel print" is beyond her Medals. She's a distinguished Professor at the University of Texas-Arlington, where she teaches Disability Rights and Inclusion to college students. She is an activist, an outspoken advocate for people with disabilities, NWBA Board Member, and a trailblazer for women in sports. Darlene was the recipient of the ESPNW Everyday Heroes Award in 2017. She was recently named Athlete Rep to USOPC (the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee) for wheelchair basketball. She is also the founder of the first and only women's only wheelchair basketball summer camp to help train the next generation of powerful women.
Get your notepad and pen ready for this episode because Dr. Darlene is going to share her wisdom, intelligence, and maturity with us. Enjoy The Wheel Print Podcast, brought to you by APM Medical Supplies.
