Ronald "Z" Zubrick, vocational rehabilitation counselor for St. Luke's Rehabilitation Institute's Structured Intensive Multidisciplinary Pain
Management Program (SIMP), has been selected to serve on the Washington Department for Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) Commission ADA Advisory Committee.
"As someone who is paralyzed and working each day at St. Luke's, where we specialize in helping patients with spinal cord injuries and other disabilities, I bring a dynamic voice to the committee," Zubrick said. "I'm excited to work with others on developing ways to ensure everyone has a chance to experience hunting, fishing and other programs available through WDFW."
The Fish and Wildlife Commission ADA Advisory Committee's goal is to provide information that helps keep the state's public land, and public-private partnerships, as well as its recreational programs accessible to people of all abilities.
"We are proud to see Z advocate for our patients and people throughout the state," said Nancy Webster, hospital administer for St. Luke's. "His love of the outdoors will allow others to experience Washington's lands with equal access."
Zubrick is a brain injury and spinal cord injury survivor with a dual master's degree from Western Michigan University in Rehabilitation Counseling and Vision Rehabilitation Therapy. As a Navy veteran, he is on the National Veterans Wheelchair team through Veterans Affairs and also plays on Team St. Luke's wheelchair basketball team.
