CourseGraphic Join us as Peggy Kirk presents an overview of the mission and vision of the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab (formerly Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago). The $550 million, 1.2 million-square-foot Shirley Ryan AbilityLab is the first-ever “translational” research hospital in which clinicians, scientists, innovators and technologists work together in the same space, surrounding patients, discovering new approaches and applying (or “translating”) research in real time. This one-of-a-kind model creates a new landscape for patient care, leveraging science-driven breakthroughs to Advance Human Ability. Open to all current OLLI members. Registration is required.

Peggy Kirk, RN, was appointed Senior Vice President & Chief Operating Officer for Shirley Ryan AbilityLab in 2007, following a distinguished career with the organization spanning more than three decades. She began her career as a Staff Nurse for the Spinal Cord Injury Program.
