The JFK Johnson Rehabilitation Institute is proud to announce that Sara J. Cuccurullo, M.D., vice president & medical director, once again acted as editor of "Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Board Review" Third Edition. This best-selling book holds a national reputation as the definitive study guide for the rehabilitation board exam given every year. Along with Sara, several physicians from JRI and JFK contributed chapters to the book.

Providing high quality care with compassion is a goal the JFK Health strives to achieve with every interaction. For physicians, achieving this goal means a never ending investment in clinical education. The vast knowledge required is derived from many sources including the professional books used to pass critical tests in their career. At JFK, we are proud that one of these books is authored by our very own professional staff member.

While this book is a major accomplishment for Dr. Cuccurullo and our organization, she has gone one step further to provide even more to patients and their families. All royalties from the book received are donated back to the JFK Foundation.

The national reputation of JRI is continually enhanced by the accomplishments of physicians like Dr. Cuccurullo, who demonstrate their commitment to teach the next generation of physicians.
