About the event:

The charismatic Eric LeGrand is a motivating source of inspiration to all who interact with him. Hear firsthand why "bELieve" is the philosophy that encourages him to power through his intense rehabilitation therapies, and how faith rouses his spirit to make an impact in others' lives.   

School of Health and Medical Sciences alumna and physical therapist Sandra "Buffy" Wojciehowski and occupational therapist Gabriella Stiefbold, healthcare professionals who have worked closely with LeGrand, will provide an insider's perspective on what they add to—and immeasurably gain from—LeGrand's quest to walk again.   

"Eric LeGrand's New Team" is the inaugural event of the Interprofessional Perspectives Speaker Series, presented by the School of Health and Medical Sciences. The School emphasizes the importance of interprofessional education (IPE), which brings together students, faculty, clinical partners and alumni from the fields of athletic training, occupational therapy, physical therapy, physician assistant and speech-language pathology in order to learn about, learn from, and learn with each other. This interprofessional approach to health sciences education leads to effective collaboration among practitioners and, ultimately, improved health outcomes for our patients and communities.
