We were privileged to have Professor Paul A. Jargowsky, of the Rutgers University Center for Urban Research and Urban Education, as our guest speaker at our 39th Annual Gala on October 19, 2012.
At the age of 15, Paul sustained burns over 70% of his body. At that time, the chances of recovery from such extensive burns were remote, but Paul was fortunate to receive care at the newly opened Crozer-Chester Burn Center. He made an amazing recovery and went on to graduate from Princeton and Harvard (masters and doctoral).
Paul showed tremendous courage through his recovery and has devoted much of his life to serving others. His bravery and inspiration of others are shining examples of the qualities that we are fortunate to see in many of our burn survivors.
