“Katie will lead our medical professionals in helping individuals with spinal cord injury restore maximum function after their injuries,” said Dr. Flora Hammond, RHI’s chief of medical affairs. “Her arrival will add to our ability to improve lives after spinal cord injury through expanding available inpatient and outpatient services and conducting research.”
