Hon. Dolors Sabater
Mayoress of Badalona
Badalona is proud to host in its municipal territory an international reference center in rehabilitation therapy, with the highest technical and human quality. The Institut Guttmann is not a referent only because of making available to those people affected by an unexpected trauma that changes their lives a chance of recovery and reconciliation with its new autonomous lifestyle, but it’s also a leader in research and innovation at the service of people, families and society.
For the city it’s an honor and an opportunity. The adversities are always opportunities for personal growth and learning. Different abilities, functional diversity, whether congenital or acquired, are a source of enrichment and improvement that adds value to coexistence, to society, for it to be fairer and more inclusive.
Congratulations on your 50 anniversary.
You have Badalona with you.
