Allison is a doctor who specializes in neurological rehabilitation and spinal cord injury medicine. She is also the inpatient attending physician at the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab (formerly the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago) in the division of spinal cord injury medicine and Assistant Professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation for Northwestern’s Feinberg School of Medicine.
No small fete–for anyone!
But this isn’t Allison’s first round at the Abilitylab. She was there as a patient after a tragic accident left her paralyzed when she was a teenager.
It’s a remarkable story of courage and inner-strength, of fierce determination and love that inspires hope in all of us who know her, which is why I want you to know her too!
