the culture of neuro-rehabilitation clinics

By colin vanden berg

Colin Vanden Berg and is a Senior English Major with a minor in journalism.  His article is “Living with Two Birth Dates: The Culture of Neuro-rehabilitation clients,” which is an ethnographic essay for Advanced Composition in which he observed a local neuro-rehab clinic and examined the rituals, symptoms, and defining features of the clients in clinics such as the one he observed. For this project, he was passionate about featuring a group of people who have experience feeling marginalized daily. After he graduates, he hopes to work part-time as a writer and/or reporter for a local or digital publication. He then hopes to work his way up to full-time position as an entertainment critic or editor. Through this project, he honed his skills for interviewing, observation, and research, all of which he plans to incorporate into his professional field.
