The holidays are upon us, and Amramp is thrilled to again be a part of the national tour of the Capitol Christmas Tree. Amramp proudly provided wheelchair access again this year at every stop so everyone was able to write their holiday messages on the banner as the tree traveled from Colorado to Washington, DC. The 2012 tree lighting at the U.S. Capitol was Dec. 4.
In this issue, we're visiting some holiday favorites: weight loss with tips from a Harvard MD, as well as positional therapy that patients can do at home, and -- if your 2013 resolutions include being more organized -- we have tips for you, too.
Amramp is proud to help keep Americans and Canadians happy and healthy in their homes, no matter what their mobility challenges. Each of us in Amramp's 44 U.S. locations -- and now in Canada -- wish you a wondrous holiday season.
Thanks for reading.
