Career advice directly from Dan Rootenberg, Spear’s President & CEO.
New York City is a living, breathing ecosystem filled with dynamic people from all walks of life. At Spear, we feel it is vitally important to stay engaged with this NYC community—with our patients, with the city’s active youth, with our professional colleagues, and by showing up for causes that are dear to our hearts.
Whether its hosting a baseball screening for the local Little League, giving a talk at a local gym, or cycling to support cancer research, we are ever aware that we are part of something much bigger than simply our practice and our team. As such, we are continually searching for ways to show NYC how much we care, and to give back to this community that has always been so supportive of us.
SPEAR had the amazing opportunity to present a lunch and learn event at Jun Group in Midtown. Our therapists did an amazing job putting on an interactive presentation for over 60 people viewing live in NY as well as in Boston, LA, and Chicago via video!
