Cyndi Cortes Instructor Bio:
When Cyndi Cortes became an interdisciplinary training trainee at the Sparks Center for Developmental and Learning Disabilities as a Master of Science in Nursing student, she did not realize how that decision would impact her clinical and professional career. While working at Children’s of Alabama in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Cortes developed a love and concern for children and adults with special health care needs and their caregivers. While at Samford University, she helped plan, organize, and implement CampUs, a summer day camp for children with special health care needs. She also volunteers with her church’s ministry for children with special health care needs. Caring for caregivers is a topic about which Dr. Cortes is passionate, and she will frequently discuss healthy lifestyle habits with all those with whom she interacts.
