LASCI: Motivational Events At Facilities Nationwide
LASCI Founder Bert Burns’ desire to make a positive difference in the lives of people with disabilities also led him to create a free motivational program for peer support and rehabilitation groups called Life After Spinal Cord Injury. LASCI is sponsored by Edgepark and UroMed.
Through LASCI, Bert devotes considerable time as a motivational speaker for children with disabilities, rehabilitation programs, medical education seminars and other community events. Bert explains his reason for reaching out is, “I hope to convince patients in wheelchairs that they can still do all the things they want to do and more. They will just have to do them differently.”
While presenting, Bert inspires others by sharing his story of winning a Gold Medal in the 1992 Paralympics and how he became a successful entrepreneur. He also gives his perspective on:
