Transverse Myelitis Foundation to Fund UAB Research

After receiving treatment at Spain Rehabilitation Center, and after speaking with Dr. Tara DeSilva, Dr. Candace Floyd, and Dr. Amie McLain, Mike Jezdimir decided to start a wonderful effort to support research and education in transverse myelitis.  Dr. DeSilva will serve as the Scientific Director for the Foundation!  Tory Minus, the educational liaison for the TJ Atchison SCI Research Program, was also critical in helping Mike and his family with the vision and process of setting this up.

Congratulations to all for such a wonderful example of great patient care, research resources, and community outreach! A great example of UAB teams working together!
