On July 10, 2012 EndDD Founder Joel Feldman was a guest lecturer at Shriner’s Hospital for Children. The focus of his presentation was how safer driving choices reduce all type of traffic accidents.
Distracted driving speaker, Joel has spoken to thousands of teens and adults about the dangers of inattentiveness while behind the wheel of a vehicle. “As an attorney for years I represented the families of those who were killed by distracted driving-It wasn’t until my 21 year old daughter was killed by a distracted driver that I changed the way that I drive.” Since his daughter’s death he has been on a mission to get the message across to as many people as possible.
An occupational therapist who attended said, “Prevention is ultimately the primary ‘cure’ for the devastating injuries we see. Joel’s message has the potential to prevent many of the pediatric spinal cord injuries that happen in this country. His message needs to be delivered and acted upon.”
Feldman reflected on the positive reaction of the audience by saying, “I was so grateful for the opportunity to participate in Shriners Grand Rounds. Shriners is an unquestioned leader in providing state-of-the art and compassionate health care to children with terrible injuries, and many of those injuries arise from motor vehicle crashes.”
