Mark Hirsch

“We are very fortunate and honored to welcome to ACRM Atlanta Professor Dr. Erwin van Wegen, an internationally highly respected movement scientist, valued colleague in stroke, Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis research, and member of the executive committee of the Dutch Society for Neurorehabilitation.  I am especially grateful that he has agreed to lead a luncheon symposium on the topic of patient/provider collaboration and participatory healthcare.”
