Wheel:Life hopes you’ll join us in giving a warm welcome to our Comfort Medical Ambassador: Margarita Elizondo! You’ll be hearing from a Margarita every other month here on Wheel:Life through a series called Comfort Conversations.
Our Comfort Medical Ambassador program is designed to help our readers connect with people who have rolled a mile in your shoes.
Our guest columnists share their thoughts, perspective and advice on a variety of topics and questions that we often receive from Wheel:Life readers.
You already know how helpful it can be to connect with like-minded friends. We see that daily in the pictures you post, like the one used here as the cover of this story – it came from the 2016 Get Out, Enjoy Life event.
That’s why we are thankful that we’re able to offer this conversational series, because of the support of Comfort Medical! Wheel:Life joined the Comfort Medical family in April 2016, and we are expanding our free resource programs as a result of our partnership.
Learn more about the Wheel:Life-Comfort Medical relationship here. But first, we’d love to introduce you to your new friend – the Comfort Ambassador representative!
