The story about how State University of New York at Stony Brook Professor Brooke Ellison has come to rely on Nextek Power System's STAR mobile solar panel to help power her ventilator, has now been featured on Stony Brook News, a student-run journalism project.

Dr. Ellison, paralyzed by a car accident in childhood, is the Director of Education and Ethics at Stony Brook University’s Stem Cell Research Facility and Associate Director of the Center for Community Engagement and Leadership Development. She is allowing scientists to field-test the STAR at her home.
