Hello, I want to say a big thank you to Meghan Lyon, the foundation and all staff that helped with the New Director training. Thank you for waiving the fee during this time of CoVid 19.  It was amazing training and I am so looking forward to connecting with my community. I wish all of the new chapter directors and their medical directors the best in helping prevent brain and spinal cord injuries.
