Spinal  Cord Injury Resource Group meeti

Spinal Cord Injury Resource Group

 

 

The Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Resource Group is composed of a diverse group of individuals with various levels of spinal cord injuries.  The group meets every other month to discuss a variety of issues related to SCI including:

  • Spinal Cord Injury Resources

  • Adaptive Sports and Recreation

  • Current Research Trends

  • Vocational Opportunities

  • Daily Living/Coping and Adaption

  • Feelings and Emotions/Family Issues

 

The SCI Resource Group serves as a place to ask questions, provide answers, and explore new ideas.  It offers learning experiences through group discussions and educational presentations, while simultaneously providing a comfortable setting to meet other individuals with spinal cord injuries.

 

This program offers support and resources to newly injured SCI patients.  New patients are visited while still in the hospital by persons with similar levels of injury as a resource to answer questions about issues of daily life and living with SCI.
