 Come hear the remarkable story of a remarkable man! Born with cerebral palsy, unable to walk until the age of 4 and partially paralyzed on his left side, John Quinn kept his condition secret to join the United States Navy.

Among the topics that John will discuss include inclusion, overcoming life challenges and disability awareness. Mr. Quinn is the author of the powerful memoir Someone Like Me - An Unlikely Story of Challenge and Triumph Over Cerebral Palsy. He will be signing copies of his book following his presentation.
