This morning, Robin Roberts with Good Morning America surprised Feranmi Okanlami, M.D., M.S., with $1 million from the Craig H. Nielsen Foundation in support of his work surrounding Adaptive Sports and Fitness at U-M.

U-M Adaptive Sports and Fitness was formed in 2018 to address the inequitable access to physical activity opportunities, competitive and recreational, for students with disabilities at U-M. It’s led by Okanlami, director of student accessibility and accommodation services in the U-M Division of Student Life and a U-M Health physician with several appointments, including the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

Okanlami is also a 2011 graduate of the U-M Medical School.
