Bert Burns became a quadriplegic as a result of an automobile accident during his youth. His desire to make a positive difference in the lives of people with disabilities led him to develop UroMed as one of the nation's leading urinary catheter supply companies, as well as to create a free motivational program for peer support and rehabilitation groups called Life After Spinal Cord Injury. In 2010, the program helped more than 600 medical professionals, patients, former patients and family members with information, advice and encouragement.
UroMed President Craig Stevens said, "It is an honor to be featured in KSNA's membership magazine. We hope that Bert's story will continue to inspire thousands of health care professionals and spinal cord injury patients about the possibilities and opportunities when encountering life after SCI."
