Trauma Healing Learning 1: The Makings of a StartUp SCI Nonprofit (with Retired Rear Admiral Tom Beeman, Dr. Kris Radcliff and Dr. Justin Tortolani)

April 13, 2022


In the months and years after Archer’s injury, Louise felt called to make sure other families dealing with spinal cord injuries had resources that she didn’t have when Archer was initially injured. This feeling led her to create Blink of an Eye and eventually I C THAT, the Integrative Center for Trauma Healing, Advocacy and Transformation. In this expanded trauma healing learning, hear about the importance of adequate medical care in the first hours after injury, the story behind I C THAT and the powerful things that happen when medical executives, practitioners, patients and their families come together to change the paradigm for care.

Our theme music is Victoria Vox. 

Music in this episode is:

Immersed by Kevin MacLeod



Calm Emotional Corporate  by Rafael Krux



Relaxing Meditation by Liron
