WHY – Reasons to attend
"I've been living with a SCI for over 20 years and I want to see things change. I can either complain about it and accept the status quo or get involved to make the change happen. With NASCIC, we are bringing our SCI community together for a collective change. At the annual meeting, there are great discussions and more importantly ideas turned into action. That is what energizes me as a part of a connected community." - Jennifer French, MBA, Executive Director, Neurotech Network
“It is important to Partner Members to have the opportunity to hear first-hand the discussions and business at hand for the community of individuals with SCI within their framework, in an environment in which they lead, and in which we can contribute as appropriate. As a Partner Member, we are enthusiastic about actively listening and understanding the community's goals and priorities and working with them to address both their goals and ours.” – Dennis Bourbeau, representative of the FES Center
“The most valuable benefit is gathering together with a growing community of organizations and individuals who are passionate about educating the community about the research process and getting involved.” – Kim Beer, representative of the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation
WHO – There are many stakeholders in the spinal cord injury community. Anyone that wants to be part of the change is invited to attend.
HOW – Registration is free, but completion of the form is required for logistic reasons.
Sponsorship – Supporting the efforts of NASCIC is critical to ensuring that the perspectives of people living with spinal cord injury are included in care, cure, research, and policy activities and initiatives that impact their lives.
