WHO WE ARE

The rehabilitation and management of patients with chronic neurological disabilities became sufficiently specialized to warrant the establishment of a society dedicated to advancing clinical care and basic and clinical research in this growing field.  The American Society of Neurorehabilitation (ASNR) was established in 1990 to meet those needs.  Read More
