Mark Jankowski first visited Gillette after sustaining a series of strokes in 1997. Through physical, occupational and speech therapy, Mark regained many of his previous skills – including sitting, eating, walking and talking. He continued visiting Gillette regularly through his childhood for orthopedic surgeries, muscle spasticity treatment, gait analysis, orthotic fittings and continuing therapy. He also found his professional calling. With a B.A. in Psychology, an M.S. in Neuroscience, and years of lived experience under his belt, Mark returned to Gillette – this time as a Clinical Research Coordinator for the hospital’s Rehabilitation Research team.
“I’ve always wanted to work at Gillette. The care and people there are top-notch, and I like having an impact working with kids with disabilities.”
