Celebration Luncheon Tuesday, June 28th 12:15 – 2:00 pm
This year, SBA is proud to present, Dr. Karin Muraszko, Chair of the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Michigan Medical School, as the 2016 Celebration Luncheon Speaker! Dr. Muraszko, an adult with Spina Bifida, was the first female admitted to Columbia University Neurosurgery program and the only female head of an academic Neurosurgery department in the United States. If you’re interested in learning more about Dr. Muraszko you can watch this video about her here. Additionally, there is a CNN article here.
SBA’s Celebration Luncheon is a fantastic way to close out the Conference. Each year, we invite an influential guest speaker who can share their story of triumph despite living with a disability. Past speakers have included individuals like American wheelchair racer Jean Driscoll and Paralympian Ryan Chalmers. The luncheon also serves as a venue to recognize various SBA Chapters and leadership and announce Conference contest winners. It closes with SBA’s highly anticipated 4b4the4th Fundraising Blitz. Join us at the end of another successful Conference to celebrate all that we have achieved as a community. Limited tickets are available, so reserve yours now! Plated appetizer, lunch, and dessert will be served.
Tickets for this event are $50 and can be purchased during the online registration process or at the Conference registration desk.
