Therapuetic Patient Events
Brain Injury Fashion Show
This very special "fashion show" is a therapeutic event for Rancho Los Amigos' patients who have overcome significant injuries and disabilities from traumatic brain injuries. It is one of Rancho’s most inspiring, emotional, and memorable events. For many patients, the very notion of getting dressed, walking, talking, and being mobile was little more than a dream. They have gone through months and years of intensive rehabilitation to get to this point in their life. This fashion show celebrates their journey in regaining pride in themselves and their appearance and gives them the opportunity to apply learned skills from their therapy sessions onto the runway. For more information regarding the Patient Fashion Show, please contact the Recreation Therapy Department at (562) 385-6323.

The Rancho Los Amigos Foundation's Annual Art of Rancho Exhibition, features the artwork of more than 50-65 Rancho artists, will be held on Wednesday, September 27, 2017 at 6pm in the SSA Building at Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center!
