NRH Service for Sam
Sam's professional life was devoted to the
field of rehabilitation engineering and assistive technology. More importantly,
Sam was committed to the idea that assistive technology, when appropriately
applied, was ultimately an instrument to empower persons with disabilities.
This vision and commitment shaped Sam's approach to working to improve the
delivery of services to people with disabilities. He was visible to the
national and international rehabilitation community through his activism in
RESNA and other professional groups.
