    Eric Harness Below Injury Recovery

    in Motivation

    Eric Harness, CSCS, CSRS III Co-Founder / Director of Research and Development
    Eric graduated from San Diego State University in 1997 with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Athletic Training and a Minor in Psychology. He then received a post-graduate certification as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association. In 1998, he met Ted and started training high school, college, and Olympic athletes in Ted’s facility. Six months later Ted began seeing Mike Thomas, his first SCI client. Eric watched as Mike began to progress and became intrigued; people with spinal cord injuries were not supposed to be able to gain function below the level of injury. He began assisting Ted and learning what he was doing with Mike. Project Walk had begun…
    Eric is now the Director of Research and Development for Project Walk and a Level III Certified SCI Recovery Specialist. In the past 11 years he developed many of the exercise techniques used with our clients, was responsible for developing the Home Program, designed a new evaluation scale (Developmental Activity Scale™ or DAS), and built the database Project Walk uses to track client workouts. In 2006 he began collaborating with the University of California, Irvine and California State University San Marcos on multiple research projects focusing on the Project Walk program and spinal cord injuries. His first paper arising out of these collaborations was published in 2008.  He has published multiple papers in peer-reviewed journals. Eric has also worked with manufacturers and independent engineers to design unique equipment for the benefit of Project Walk’s clients.

    Collective Grief: 9-11 & Brain Injury on Recovery Now With Kim Justus

    in Social Networking

    September 11, 2001 signaled a day of everlasting change for most of America. When we had our brain injuries, that process of ongoing grief and change, happened for us too. In both cases, many suffer not only from their injuries, but PTSD as well. Please call in tonight on this Eve of 9-11, when many of us revisit our grief from the country's tragedy, to those of our own. Collective mourning lends itself to support, and frees us from the isolation, we so often seek. It was 14 years ago that 9-11 happened. For me, 19 years since my brain injury. Too often we are told by others, or believe ourselves, that we should be done feeling the sting of our mourning this far down the road. Reality shows us, that recovery is process, with many triggers on the road, reminding us of the day(s) that changed us forever.


    This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. I introduce topics, and survivor's share their experience, strength and hope. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery.

    Major League Baseball Ambassodor for Brain Injury Prevention and Recovery

    in Education

    Tonight, Ken Collins will talk about his attempt to become Major League Baseball (MLB) Ambassodor for Brain Injury Prevention and Recovery.  Ken has been an active participant in developing community-based servcies for people with brain injuries since 1983 and as a VISTA Volunteer helped to create the first transitional living program in the US for people with brain injuries. The award winning Uhlhorn Apartments opened it's doors in 1990 and remains one of the most cost effective programs in the US to provide brain injury independent living services.  Ken has been active with brain injury prevention and awareness activities since becoming a founding member of the Oregon Head Injury Foundation in 1985.  He has held many positions over the years with city, county, state and national organizations educating people about the consequences of brain injury.  He is currently Vice-Chair of the New Mexico Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC) and Program Manager at the San Juan Center for Independence-Gallup office where he provides independent living services and peer support to people/vets with brain injuries in McKinley County.   MLB recently created the Ambassodor for Inclusion and asked former minor league baseball player Billy Bean to take on this responsibility.  FOX Sports reported: Billy Bean was in Portland, Ore., when he got the call. Not the kind of call he once received as a minor-league outfielder, summoning him to the majors. No, a call that was even more significant, the first step toward baseball welcoming Bean, a publicly gay man, back to its family.  
    Efforts that marked a natural if belated progression for the sport of Jackie Robinson, efforts that led to Bean being named baseball’s ambassador for inclusion on July 15.  Bean, 50, had retired from baseball after the 1995 season.
