Children’s Specialized Hospital Research Center has created an innovative, unique, and exciting opportunity for all health care professionals to learn more about featured topics and research projects.
”The Distinguished Lecture Series was created to bring together basic, translational, and clinical research to advance pediatric rehabilitation,” said Michael Dribbon, PhD, VP of Business and Program Development  at Children’s Specialized Hospital. “We are honored and excited to welcome these highly respected researchers to our hospital and offer this resource to our network of medical professionals and researchers.”
