Dolphin Legend Dan Marino’s Son To Kick Off National Disability Awareness Month

By Marquetta Bivens

Michael Marino, the son of retired Miami Dolphin quarterback Dan Marino, will be part of a panel discussion that will kick off National Disability Awareness Month on October 8 at North Campus.

The event will take place at 9:50 a.m. at the Lehman Theater, 11380 N.W. 27 Ave., Room 5120.

Michael Marino, who was diagnosed autism when he was 2 years old, will be joined on the panel by  Monica and David Martinez and Moise Brutus.

“I believe that it’s imperative that students, staff and faculty become more aware that a disability does not hold anyone back from being successful,” said Kesia Vazquez, the director of ACCESS services at North Campus.

The event is free and open to the public.
