Marissa Koscielski joins a roster of established educators and clinical thought leaders dedicated to advancing early detection and intervention
SOUTH BEND, Ind., June 14, 2021 – Enlighten Mobility founder Marissa Koscielski has been named a keynote speaker at the upcoming 2021 Early Cerebral Palsy E-Health Summit. Koscielski joins a roster of established educators and clinical thought leaders dedicated to advancing early detection and intervention.
Koscielski will share her inspiring story of determination to challenge the status quo of mobility care after suffering temporary immobility and discovering firsthand the lack of effective solutions for her own recovery – and introduce Enlighten Mobility’s first medical diagnostic device, the GMat Neuromotor Screening. As the first automated non-invasive neuromotor screening for newborns, the GMat uses artificial intelligence to detect patterns of variability the human eye and brain are unable to process, serving as an objective indicator for further evaluation. Studies utilizing the GMat on newborns are currently underway with the Early Detection and Intervention network of top U.S. neonatal intensive care units.
“Our work with the Early Detection and Intervention Network advances our commitment to early intervention for all individuals – and I’m thrilled to be part of this year’s summit to continue our conversation about accelerating the path to earlier timing and targeting of diagnosis for all children,” said Koscielski.
The fourth annual summit is hosted by the Cerebral Palsy Foundation to bring together a collaborative network of leaders to help the community better understand how to transform what is possible for people of all ages with disabilities.
“The focus of this year’s summit is on even earlier detection because we want to intervene safely and effectively in high risk infants,” said 2021 Early Cerebral Palsy E-Health Summit co-chair Nathalie Maitre, M.D., Ph.D., and Enlighten Mobility medical director. “We’ll share new findings from the best researchers and clinicians in the field and explore ways to translate knowledge into practice for the implementation of early detection.”
The Early Cerebral Palsy E-Health Summit takes place August 13-14, 2021. Registered attendees will have access to keynote presentations, interactive workshops and training sessions held online or in-person at Emory University in Atlanta, GA.
