LASCI Travels to Pennsylvania & New Jersey Rehab Hospitals

lascilogoIn August, the LASCI roadshow continues as we are taking our free motivational program to Pennsylvania and New Jersey for special appearances at Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Hospital, Magee Rehabilitation Hospital and Kessler Rehabilitation Hospital.  Join the fun with LASCI founder Bert Burns as he visits with in-patients, clinical staff, family members and caregivers at all three facilities!

LASCI Speaking Events in Pennsylvania & New Jersey

The schedule for the LASCI speaking tour will be:

  • August 25 – Good Shepherd Rehab
  • August 26 – Magee Rehab
  • August 27 – Kessler Rehab

Each free, motivational presentation will spotlight the life story of LASCI founder Bert Burns, a C6-7 quadriplegic who inspires others by sharing his perspective on winning a Gold Medal in the 1992 Paralympics and how he became a successful entrepreneur. He also gives his advice on important issues such as:

• Sexuality
• Marriage

• Bladder/Bowel Management

UroMed’s founder, Bert Burns, became a C6-7 quadriplegic as a result of an automobile accident in his youth. His desire to make a positive difference in the lives of people with disabilities led him to establish UroMed as well as creating a free motivational program for peer support and rehabilitation groups that today is known as Life After Spinal Cord Injury.

About Kessler Rehabilitation Hospital

For more than 65 years, Kessler Institute has pioneered the course of physical medicine and rehabilitation.  Today, as the nation’s largest single rehabilitation hospital, we continue to define this field — providing the highly specialized care, advanced treatment and leading-edge technologies that enable individuals with spinal cord injury, brain injury, stroke, amputation, neurological diseases, musculoskeletal and orthopedic trauma, and cardiac conditions to rebuild their lives.

Kessler is one of only eight centers in the country to receive federal designation as a Model System for the treatment and research of both spinal cord injury and brain injury treatment and research, a distinction we hold with the Kessler Foundation.  That same level of expertise and experience distinguishes each of the comprehensive rehabilitation programs offered at our three New Jersey campuses.  Perhaps that’s one reason why U.S. News & World Report ranks Kessler as one of “America’s Best Hospitals” and why, each year, thousands of individuals from across the country choose Kessler for their rehabilitation.  Learn more at: http://www.kessler-rehab.com/
