This week, Dr. Daniel Correa talks with Wesley Hamilton, disability activist and founder of Disabled But Not Really. Wesley shares his story of becoming paralyzed after a spinal cord injury and how he changed his perspective on life as a parent and for other people with disabilities. Next, Dr. Correa speaks with Dr. Barth Green, neurosurgeon and specialist in the surgical management of complex spine and spinal cord injuries and disorders at the University of Miami Health System, and co-founder of The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis.
