The Annual Rehab Fair is held yearly at The Mount Sinai Hospital, in the Annenberg West Lobby, on Madison Avenue and 100th Street. This event is for individuals with brain injury, spinal cord injury, and other disabilities, as well as for their friends and families. Information about advocacy groups, wellness, nutrition, research, transportation, and recreation will be presented. Equipment vendors also exhibit the latest technology. Van conversions and accessible modifications will be demonstrated in the courtyard. The New York TBI Model System, the Mount Sinai Spinal Cord Injury Model System, and the Mount Sinai Rehabilitation Center co-sponsor the fair.
A variety of clinical trials and other research studies are being conducted at Mount Sinai, addressing many of the challenges people with TBI face daily: depression, problems in thinking and fatigue.
