Welcome to our podcast series, “My Life As A Research Assistant”. This series is brought to you by Kessler Foundation, where we are changing the lives of people with disabilities.

Research assistants are on the front lines of our research studies—collecting data, conducting interviews, testing subjects—and are the face of Kessler Foundation to our research study participants. In 2020, Kessler Foundation was ranked among one of the Best Nonprofits to Work For and Best Places to Work in New Jersey (kesslerfoundation.org/press-release/…ork-new-jersey)!

Throughout this series, we’ll meet up with research assistants from our centers for mobility, spinal cord injury, stroke, traumatic brain injury, and neuroscience and neuropsychology who have been with the Foundation for over a year, and some who are now senior research assistants, nurses, medical students, graduate students, and post docs, and those who applied their experience to other professions.

In this episode, I met up with Salma Omai who worked as a research assistant in our Center for Stroke Research in from 2015-2017, where she worked with patients recovering from stroke and assessed them for various resultant cognitive deficits. Currently, Slama is a marketing associate, at T-fal Cookware in Northern New Jersey. Listen in as Salma talks to Joan Banks-Smith, Creative Producer for Kessler Foundation about her experience at the Foundation.
