Advisory Committee

The IRSG Advisory Committee is composed of accomplished experts offering innovative advice and dynamic perspectives to the IRSG membership. These individuals bring unique knowledge, experience, and expertise which enhance the knowledge and skills of the formal board and IRSG general membership. The advisory committee does not have formal authority to govern the IRSG but serves as an advocate for the organization, gathers input from/serve as a liaison with relevant constituencies, provides feedback to the organization from the rehab/provider community, provides technical expertise, and provides an independent/unbiased sounding board for the members of the IRSG. The IRSG is very grateful for the members of the Advisory Committee and appreciate their contributions to the success of the organization!
