"Who Says I Can't?" Meredith Drench Lecture by Jothy Rosenberg
Presented by Boston University Sargent College
April 11, 2013
This year, in addition to his roles as entrepreneur, author, motivational speaker, and extreme sports enthusiast Jothy Rosenberg, PhD, will deliver the 2013 Meredith E. Drench Lecture at Boston University's Sargent College of Health & Rehabilitation Sciences on April 11, 2013 at 4:30 PM.
His talk, “Who Says I Can’t”, titled after his book of the same name, will share Rosenberg’s perspective on the effect that suddenly becoming disabled and believing your life is over can have on one’s personality and ability to fight back, recover, and thrive. Rosenberg was selected as the ideal embodiment of the spirit of the Drench Lecture, which focuses on the connection between physical rehabilitation and psychosocial behavioral influences. The goal of the Lecture is to advocate both Sargent and Drench’s shared belief in the “compassionate rehabilitation” of the whole person. The annual Drench lecture was started in 2009 through an endowment from Sargent College alumna Meredith E. Drench, PhD, PT.
