The Team

Our Team here at The Kosair Charities Center for Pediatric NeuroRecovery consists of a team of professionals with a passion and a purpose for working with children with spinal cord injury as well as other neuromotor conditions. Our blend of expertise from varied disciplines related to neurorecovery and pediatrics contributes to our ability to apply knowledge gained in research to the child in the clinic. Similarly, the experience gained from working with the child in the clinic informs and drives our research agenda. We consider the core of our team to be the children and families that we serve.
