Though we made the announcement three weeks ago, NorCal SCI is pleased to announce the official launch of our first-ever free SCI Mobile Clinic that will travel to San Luis Obispo for a day-long visit on Sat., Sept. 22nd from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. to meet individuals with SCI who can benefit from visiting a team of OT, PT and RN professionals with specific expertise in SCI/D. Applications are now being accepted for a limited number of appointments available for the day.
We are grateful to the Noor Foundation for making its clinic available to us. Thus, all appointments will be held at 1428 Phillips Lane, Suite B-4 in San Luis Obispo.
NorCal SCI co-founders, Nick and Franklin, would like to thank the trio of medical professionals volunteering their time and making the trip along with them. The team is made up of:
Carole Adler Hughes, over 35 years of experience as an OT working with individuals with SCI at the renowned Spinal Cord Injury and Rehab Trauma Center at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center.
Rebecca Hummel-Moore, Nurse Practitioner at Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in Berkeley with expertise in spasticity, bowel & bladder management and skin care.
Gillian Haskell, received her B.S. in Nutrition & Food Sciences, Doctorate in Physical Therapy and Masters in Public Health, and currently works in the Intensive Care Unit at UCSF Medical Center.
Nick and Franklin will also be present to answer any questions or offer any peer mentoring that may be needed. As of this time, we're also working on securing a wheelchair repair technician that can perform minor repairs.
For any questions, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (408) 458-9863.
