Spinal cord injury awareness

There are 12,000 new cases of spinal cord injury (SCI) in the U.S., each year; approximately 10 percent affect children under the age of 16. The Prevention Begins with Awareness campaign aims to bring awareness to the most prevalent causes of these injuries and ways families can be safer.

An academic foundation

We have close affiliations with several medical teaching facilities, where many of our current staff members also serve as educators, sharing their expertise with tomorrow’s medical professionals.
