Aging with a Spinal Cord Injury


Presented on October 9, 2012 at the University of Washington Medical Center, Seattle, WA.

People with SCI are living longer after injury than ever before. What are the special concerns for people aging with a spinal cord injury and what can they do to age well and stay as healthy as possible? In this video, our panel of experts—five people with SCI who, taken together, have been living with SCI for 189 years!—discuss their experiences and share their methods for coping with changes and staying healthy and positive as they age.
