Last year, Sitrin established a new component to its Military Rehabilitation Program, the Military-Civilian Coalition (MCC), which offers monthly social and athletic endeavors for veterans of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), or Operation New Dawn (OND). It is designed to promote camaraderie, advocacy, educational opportunities and transitional support to civilian life.
Northern Safety and Industrial made Christmas a little brighter this year for three of Sitrin’s veteran families by making sure they had boxes wrapped underneath the tree and a delicious spread on the table. Collectively, nearly 500 employees raised more than $4,000 in toys, presents, gift cards and food for the families to make this fundraiser the biggest Northern Safety has done to date.

"Veterans' rehabilitation programs amazing"
November 20 2014
This letter appeared in the Observer-Dispatch's Saturday, November 15 Editorial section. We are proud of the work Sitrin's Vice President of Clinical Development Jackie Warmuth is doing for veterans and we appreciate Ms. Leavitt for publicly acknowledging Jackie and Sitrin's Military Rehabilitation Program.
Students enrolled in the Physical Therapy Assistant (PTA) program at Herkimer College are receiving specialized training at the Sitrin Medical Rehabilitation Center to allow them to conduct free baseline screens for athletes. An essential component to concussion management, baseline screening involves gathering data on how athletes (individuals) think and how well they maintain their balance. “These two areas are vital and allow therapists to individualize return-to-play decisions for athletes,” said Dr. James Wallace, director of clinical rehabilitation services at Sitrin. “There are many athletes in our community and the demand exists to address this missing link.”
On September 6, Upton VFW Post 8259 held the first-ever Stars & Stripes Across the Land event, raising $3,800 to support Sitrin’s Military Rehabilitation Program. Members of the Post sold American flags in honor of past and present service members, which they displayed on the front lawn of the VFW. The event included a ceremony to recognize each service member.
