Sue Mukherjee, MD, became interested in physiatry after she spent a summer in India working with children with polio. Since then, she’s worked with pediatric and adolescent patients like Holly, Dontae, Aimee, and Jordan.
For each of these patients, the journey has been as much about helping them realize their goals and aspirations as it is about managing their physical challenges.
“All of us come together around patient goals and…what the patient wants to become,” says Mukherjee, MD. “Being able to help that is really important.”
On Friday, October 13th, Physiatrists dedicated 24 hours to celebrate all aspects of the specialty through videos, pictures, and story-telling. Physiatry Day was originated to unify the specialty and to intensify its impact within the health care landscape.
