Pride: Coming to a city near you

Sunday, August 17, 2008

EXETER, Pa. - Pride Mobility Products has three more cities left on its whirlwind seminar tour. Attendees of the two-day seminars receive legislative updates, earn continuing education units (CEUs) and prepare for RESNA certification.

The tour enables "providers across the country to easily access the educational courses needed to maintain their RESNA-required certifications, and, equally important, knowledgeably recommend the most suitable products to accommodate the end users' mobility and pressure-management needs," said Ted Raquet, Pride's vice president of domestic sales, in a release.

When the tour comes to a close in October, Pride Mobility will have visited 28 cities. The remaining cities: Greensboro, N.C., on Sept. 18; Nashville, Tenn., on Sept. 23; and Atlanta on Oct. 24

At its most recent stop, at Pride's headquarters here, 160 attendees toured the company's manufacturing facility, and research and development and product testing departments.

"Pride Mobility's focus is on the continuous evolution of developing quality products that enable the end-user to achieve their mobility goals," said Scott Meuser, Pride's chairman and CEO, in a release.

Attendees at the Exeter seminar received a legislative update from Seth Johnson, vice president of government affairs, and a luncheon address by Bryan Anderson, an Iraqi-war veteran and spokesman for Quantum Rehab, a division of Pride.
