The Executive Council of the North American Spinal Cord Injury Consortium (NASCIC) has been asked by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to provide input from our spinal cord injured community to help chart the future of funding for spinal cord injury (SCI) research in the next decade.
United Spinal Association is both a founding member of NASCIC and has representation on the NASCIC Executive Council. This is the first time that we, as a community, have been invited to provide meaningful input into setting the priorities that may better represent our wishes when it comes to SCI research.
We respectfully ask that if you have an SCI, or are a family member or caregiver of someone with an SCI, that you take the time to fill out the survey linked below and if possible, forward the survey to friends and family who have been impacted by SCI and to members of your organizations that represent people with spinal cord injuries. This is a great opportunity for all of us to have an impactful voice in the course of critical SCI research!
Please join United Spinal and the North American SCI Consortium in providing guidance to both the NIH and the many SCI scientists in moving forward into the next decade of SCI research.
