In the wake of the shooting of U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Tucson, Arizona’s medical community has received worldwide news media attention. Most recently, with Rep. Giffords transitioning into a new phase of her recovery, the focus has turned to how rehabilitation proceeds for brain-injury patients.

Among the experts in this field of medicine is 1987 Flinn Scholar Christina Kwasnica, director of neurorehabilitation at Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix.

In the video segment embedded below from PBS NewsHour, senior correspondent Judy Woodruff interviews Dr. Kwasnica and other physicians about the rehabilitative care Rep. Giffords will receive.
