Beam takes wheelchair user to the White House

My name is Alice Wong and I’m a wheelchair user that doesn’t travel anymore. I was invited to an event at the White House celebrating the ADA and did not plan on attending because I don’t fly anymore.
However, I was able to participate by using BeamPro.

I really believe in Robots for Humanity. Here’s a blog post about my use of telepresence robots:
