New Rochelle’s Bill Bauman has just received a Service to America Medal (“Sammie”) in recognition of his efforts to improve the quality of care available to paralyzed veterans.  Bill, who is the Director of the National Center of Excellence for the Medical Consequences of Spinal Cord Injury, was honored with his colleague Ann Spungen.

The Sammies are among the most prestigious awards given to public servants, so this is a really big deal.  And, of course, an even bigger deal is how Bill and Ann’s work is improving the lives of veterans and others with spinal cord injuries.  Here’s a little more from the Washington Post.

I am glad to highlight Bill’s achievement as an example of the great talent within our community.
