Warm Springs Rehabilitation Hospital in Warm Springs, GA
Marmaduke Loke was invited to present at Warm Springs Rehabilitation Hospital in Warm Springs, GA on April 13, 2006.  The Polio conference also had great presentations by Dr. Marny Eulberg from St. Anthony's Hospital in Denver, CO.  She founded the Post-Polio Clinic over 20 years ago.  Mark Taylor, CPO Director of University of Michigan Orthotic & Prosthetic Department and Carlos Valenzuela, CP from Progressive Orthopedics.
It was an honor to present and stay at such a historic rehabilitation facility.  Warm Springs was especially known for the rehabilitation of polio survivors after Franklin D. Roosevelt established it as the first modern rehabilitation hospital.  FDR even built a little White House in Warm Springs, GA.  FDR returned often to take advantage of the benefits the warm springs, therapy's, and where he had his braces made.
Today, Warm Springs Rehabilitation Hospital sees people with various neuromuscular disorders not just Polio.  The spirit of helping and healing is still evident.  I recommend a trip to take the guided tour of Warm Springs and the Little White House with the adjoining museum.

"The challenge, was it worth it? Yes! Definitely worth it. There are times that I can sort of march, that I was never able to do before. I can go longer distances when I walk my dog and I don't feel like my knee is going to buckle." -- M.E. MD


"The challenge was worth every bit, I mean, it just gets you all excited about (it) and you want to go do it again. That's what life's about, it's challenges and pushing yourself to another goal." -- E.W. All American Over Sixty TriAthlete
