Last year, the Sabrina Cohen Foundation (SCF) teamed up with the City of Miami Beach to help improve beach access for those with disabilities. This past June, the commissioners voted unanimously to designate the sandy stretch for the first fully accessible beach in the State of Florida. She also received a $15,000 grant from the Miami Foundation for special equipment that will enable the disabled to make full use of the beach, with equipment such as adaptive picnic tables and surfboards. SCF is also currently raising funds for an adaptive playground on this site, as well as the creation of an adaptive fitness center nearby. READ MORE

Sabrina Cohen visited Cleveland FES Center in Ohio to check out the latest work of SCF Science Advisor, Dr. Hunter Peckham and his team from Case Western Reserve University, to help individuals living with paralysis regain function with the latest advances of implantable devices. The most exciting part about her experience was the chance to witness the progress of this technology that Dr. Peckham is preparing to surgically implant in the next 10 patients with their latest FES system.
