Each week in From the Roots: Clinician’s Blog, Ann Eubank (pictured right) sounds the battle cry to challenge the status quo, empower patients with tools of the trade, and display the everyday courage and heroic effort it takes for clinicians to initiate action in a broken system. The blog is sponsored by TiLite.
Her weekly posts spotlight the ongoing battle against a broken system. Whether it is the struggle of the underdog against a “Goliath” system that puts the bottom line before patients, the brushing aside of mediocrity to be the hero of change, or the call for clinicians to “throw” themselves in order to change what may not appear possible, Eubank’s message remains the same: challenge the system and pass the advocacy torch on through this and future generations to ensure the accessibility and quality of life for mobility users.
Eubank is a nationally recognized advocate for wheelchair users, vice president of Community Initiatives for grassroots movement UsersFirst, and a regular columnist for Rehab Management.
