In this episode, Bean shares an enthusiastic vision that strives to allow people to achieve their physical and mental ambitions through innovation based upon science, collaboration amongst peers, and evidence-based methodologies. She challenges the medical system by creating opportunities for new insights to fuel better research about the damage done to the central nervous system. It all starts with the right mindset.
