DK Joins ABC Medical Team at Angel City Games

Jul 15, 2019 4:36:23 PM / by Adriana McGhee

The 4th Annual Angel City Games was held June 20-23rd on the beautiful campus of UCLA. Two of our Regional Sales Managers, Lina Mozian and Matt Torres, along with our Marketing Manager, Isil Tanyeri, represented ABC Medical throughout the weekend where we were a proud bronze sponsor. We're honored to be the only company in the DME industry to attend such large-scale sporting events and continue to encourage conversations around medical supplies with athletes and their families. We feel lucky to have met many Paralympians and witness several athletes breaking new records in their respective categories. Among the Paralympians was the legendary Paralympic Gold Medalist and an ABC Medical advocate Dave Kiley who was there to support the 3x3 wheelchair basketball tournament held in John Wooden Center. Below, DK shares his personal experience first time attending the Angel City Games.

Thank you DK for your support!

"Southern California is where I grew up and spent most of my life. I have some of the best memories of the So-Cal lifestyle. The ocean- ever so near, and constantly creating a breeze that is unforgettable and constant. Now, living in North Carolina and in the dog days of summer I could truly appreciate 70 degree days and 60 degree nights while attending the 5th Annual Angel City Games on the campus of UCLA.

Dare to Have a Voice. Your Voice Matters to Plant the Seeds of Hope in this World! 

Politics and sports. 

These two words have always represented two separate and divergent worlds to me.

The Art of Providing Legendary Customer Service

When Jason Barker set up at the PVA Wheelchair Bowling tournament in Shawnee, OK earlier this month he didn't know what to expect other than watching some wheelchair bowling and meeting the athletes, as usual. Jason Barker, a traveling regional sales manager for ABC Medical since November 2018, had been traveling since the NWBA Junior and Women's Championships in New Lenox, IL and Quad Rugby Championships in Rockford, IL the previous weekend. On day one of the PVA Midewestern Wheelchair Bowling Tournament, one of the bowlers rolled up to the ABC Medical table. We'll call him Nick in this article to protect his privacy. The thing about Nick is that he had not packed enough catheters with him for the 4 day trip in Shawnee, OK. He said he was from Colorado Springs. Jason looked at our table display and the catheter boxes underneath the table, searching through the different fr. sizes. He was able to find a few samples of 14 fr. size which is what Nick said he uses and gave them all to him. However, that was not going to be enough for Nick to get through the end of the tournament.
