There was a time when the majority of Lakeshore’s work was thought to be contained within our beautiful campus. Now, with the vision to “Improve the lives of people with physical disability around the world,” our opportunity, our reach, and indeed our obligation goes beyond our walls and our grounds. There are no limits. Our approach is now more expansive in our three pillars of activity, research, and advocacy. As we look to the future, each step we take is grounded in creating an inclusive society that truly benefits everyone, and we are committed to doing the hard work that it will take to make that a reality.
