Former nonprofit executive on growing up as a polio survivor, lasting impacts
Susan Au Doyle says growing up as a polio survivor gave her the empathy to thrive as a nonprofit executive. She served as CEO of the Aloha United Way and CEO of the local YWCA.
But she didn't really talk about having polio, which she contracted in 1954. Her left leg is weak but only recently was she diagnosed with post-polio syndrome. She spoke to The Conversation about surviving polio.
