Bradford Berk Issues Video Message to University Community
In an online video message issued today, Medical Center CEO Bradford Berk makes his first public “appearance” to the University community since his bicycling accident this past spring. In addition to thanking the community for its outpouring of encouragement, prayers, and well-wishes, Berk candidly talks about his accident, rescue, and the care he received at Strong Memorial Hospital. He also describes the extent of his injury, the progress he made while at the Kessler Institute in New Jersey, and his plans to continue outpatient rehabilitation therapy here in Rochester, while Mark Taubman continues as acting CEO.
