"Trauma affects everyone, regardless of age, race, or economic status. Stepping Strong aims to reduce the number and severity of traumatic injuries in Boston and beyond."
—Ali Salim, MD, Stepping Strong Center Medical Co-Director

"A moment that defines my commitment to leading the center was when Gillian and I participated in B.A.A. 5K race. Our goal is to fuel innovation programs that lead to happy endings like Gillian’s."
—Mitchel B. Harris, MD, Stepping Strong Medical Co-Director

“For patients with a high level of chronic pain, amputation can be the best form of salvage. Ewing Procedure patients enjoy more precise control of their limb and increased sensory freedom.”
— Matthew J. Carty, MD, Stepping Strong Center Director of Strategy and Innovation

“Our goal is to provide the brilliant professionals at the Brigham with the funding to help patients with devastating traumatic injuries achieve the best possible outcomes."
—Steven, Audrey, Danielle, and Gillian Reny

The mission of The Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation is to catalyze trauma innovation for injured civilians and military heroes, through multidisciplinary investigative collaborations across the continuum of trauma care, from prevention to treatment and recovery. 

The Stepping Strong Innovator Awards program inspires multi-institutional faculty to pursue groundbreaking innovation with a goal of transforming outcomes for civilians and military heroes worldwide.

The Stepping Strong Injury Prevention and Intervention program aims to reduce the number and severity of traumatic injuries resulting from elderly falls, gun violence, distracted driving, and substance use.

The Stepping Strong Plastic Surgery Trauma Fellowship is a unique program designed to train the next generation of medical leaders in advanced and innovative techniques for treating acute and complex injury.

True to the Boston Strong spirit of kindness and collaboration, the members of the Stepping Strong community are inspired to come together to help those with traumatic injuries step strong again.

Wishing the best of luck to the 2024 Stepping Strong @bostonmarathon runners as they make their 26.2 mile journey today from Hopkinton to Boston! 💙💛🩷

The Stepping Strong Center is honored to have a team of more than 150 runners from 23 states who are joining us in celebrating 10 years of transforming trauma care. 

It is hard to believe that it has been 11 years since the tragic event that fueled the Reny and Epstein families to give back to other trauma survivors who experience devastating injuries. Since then, the Stepping Strong Center has proudly grown into a multidisciplinary hub that supports trauma survivors along the continuum of trauma care from prevention to treatment and recovery. 

We look back on the past decade with pride in our community and the advancements we have achieved and look forward to the decades ahead with continued hope and commitment to innovation. 

If you would like to wish our runners luck and thank them for their months of hard work and dedication, please consider making a donation by clicking the link in our bio and story. 

Go Stepping Strong runners! We’ll be cheering you on every step of the way! 💪🏼🏃‍♀️‍➡️

#TraumaAwarenessThursday 

Despite the devastating fact that trauma is the leading cause of death for people ages 44 and younger in the United States, less than 2% of federal funding is allocated toward trauma research. 

At the Stepping Strong Center, fueling research is a core pillar of work in our mission to support trauma survivors. Research allows brilliant physician-scientists to find new ways of preventing traumatic injuries from happening, treating traumatic injuries when they do occur, and improving the long-term recovery of trauma survivors. 

Since 2014, the Stepping Strong Center has proudly funded 60 teams whose research aims to make an impact in the lives of trauma patients everywhere. To learn more about these innovative projects, please click the link in our bio or visit BWHSteppingStrong.org.

According to the @cdcgov, unintentional traumatic injuries are the leading cause of death for people ages 44 and younger, ahead of cancer and heart disease. These injuries include opioid overdoses, motor vehicle crashes, and unintentional falls. 

The Stepping Strong Center believes that most traumatic injuries are preventable and since 2014, we have remained committed to building healthier and safer communities.
