What is the ultimate goal of the Paralympics? How do hospitals such as Toronto Rehab help to bridge the gap between newly acquired disability and sport?

Adam and Dr. Tardif, who is also the President of the Canadian Paralympic Committee, will have the answers today at noon.

Tune in to learn more about rehab, parasport and the athletes that will be going for gold at the upcoming Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro from Sept. 7-18.
