Share Your Story

We are are always looking to share the impact physical rehabilitation has on helping our patients return to their everyday lives. Our former patients and their loved ones have shared their stories to raise awareness of the important role physical rehabilitation had during their recovery.

 

Did you have a great experience with us? We want to hear from you and share your story. If you are interested in helping promote the power of physical, occupational and speech therapy in your own words, please email Patrice Bendig@uphs.upenn.edu to learn more. Click here to read the inspirational stories of former patients and how physical rehabilitation helped them get back to their passions.
