In July 2014, Einstein Healthcare Network/ MossRehab partnered with The Accessibility Icon Project to become the first hospital/ healthcare system in Philadelphia to adopt the new Accessible Icon. Since then, we have advocated for others to also make the switch, starting with successfully lobbying the City of Philadelphia.
What is the Accessible Icon?
Launched by co-founders Sara Hendren and Brian Glenney in 2011, the Accessibility Icon Project was created to help society reimagine the more engaged role that people with disabilities might play in society.
