Every Brain Matters Monthly Speakers Meeting – Dr. Rex Marco

February 4 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm CST

Join us on the first Friday of every month for messages of hope and healing from the impacts of marijuana. We welcome a different speaker every month who will share their experience and provide pathways to find serenity as we navigate through today’s pro-marijuana/drug culture. Whether you’re grieving the loss of a loved one or trying to recover yourself, this meeting is for you. There will be a Q & A at the end of each meeting. This meeting is appropriate for all family members ages 13 and up.

We are honored to welcome Dr. Rex Marco for the month of February 2022.    Link To Meeting      Meeting ID: 872 9417 0134     Passcode: ebmsupport

Dr. Rex Marco obtained his degree in biological sciences at UC Irvine and then graduated medical school at UCLA.  He then completed an orthopedic surgery residency at UC Davis and fellowship training in Musculoskeletal Oncology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and in Reconstructive Spine Surgery at Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke’s Medical Center in Chicago.  He began his academic career at MD Anderson Cancer Center followed by a few years in private practice and nearly a decade at the University of Texas Medical School in Houston.  He then became the Vice Chairman of orthopedic surgery at Houston Methodist Hospital where his surgical career was tragically shortened when he broke his neck in a mountain bicycle accident and was paralyzed from the neck down. He is currently the Chief Medical Ambassador for the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation where he also serves on the quality-of-life grants committee and advocacy committee. Dr. Marco has always sought to be the best father, physician, surgeon,DDD and teacher that he could be. He is known to be creative and transformative in his practice and teachings but says that his real transformation came when he was forced into recovery when he experienced difficulties related to his severe codependency and his mar-anon qualifiers.  He will be sharing his story of recovery with us.
