Styes named recipient in the Changemaker Medicine category
The Recovery Project, a leading provider of progressive, effective neuro rehab therapies that improve the lives and functionality of patients with spinal cord and other neurological injuries, announced that Steve Styes has been recognized as a 2018 SEEN Changemaker by SEEN Magazine in the “Medicine” category. President and co-CEO of The Recovery Project, Polly Swingle, made the announcement.
The SEEN Changemaker Awards were developed to recognize people in Metro Detroit who go above and beyond to help others and uplift the community through their work. Styes, who came to The Recovery Project in December 2016 as a Wellness Coordinator, was recognized as a role model in the field of medicine and someone who treats patients or those in recovery with the highest respect and kindness.
“The Recovery Project wouldn’t be what it is today without people like Steve Styes who continually go above and beyond to help patients be the best versions of themselves,” said Swingle. “This is an incredible honor for Steve and a testament to the tireless dedication he has for helping others.”
Styes came to The Recovery Project in December of 2016 as a Wellness Coordinator after previously working in healthcare technology as a trainer for 25 years. He is certified in PWR!, a wellness program designed to help individuals with Parkinson’s keep their symptoms at bay, and has worked to implement the program at TRP’s three locations. He is also a certified trainer in Rock Steady Boxing and helped TRP became the first outpatient therapy clinic in Michigan to offer Rock Steady Boxing wellness classes. As of July 2018, the wellness programs provided at TRP have had a revenue of over $100,000, thanks in large part to Styes’ efforts.
The SEEN Magazine Changemaker Awards consist of seven categories; Art & Entertainment, Business, Civic Service, Education, Medicine, Nonprofit and Philanthropy.
