He also developed a passion for orthopedic and neurologic physical therapy completing four clinical affiliations including rotations at Hands On Physical Therapy as well as on the Brain Trauma Unit of the JFK-Johnson Rehabilitation Institute. Like many others at Hands On, Greg also has a desire to serve the community, which he has done through participation in a pro bono clinic via Rutgers University helping to rehabilitate members of the Newark community in addition to service initiatives with his local church.
