About LASCI’s Motivational Programs
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.” Bert is a C6-7 quadriplegic himself. He was paralyzed in his 20s when a drunk driver hit his vehicle.
