SCI Forum Schedule

Getting Around Town: Securing You and Your Wheelchair
Presented by Elisa Smith, PT, DPT, NCS; Holly Wakefield, PT, DPT, NCS; Susan Collins, CTRS/R; and Julie Grant, OTR/L.
Whether you travel by car, van, or bus, you want to get around town safely. What is the best way to do this? Stay in your chair, or transfer to a seat? What if transferring is not an option? In this forum, two PTs, an OT, and a Recreation Therapist will present current information so you can make decisions about the best, safest way to transport yourself and your wheelchair. They will focus on being a passenger (adaptive driving will not be covered). Continuing Education Credits will be available for physical and occupational therapists: 1.5 contact hours. Certificates will be provided.
5:30 – 6:30 pm Meet & Greet hosted by the Here & Now Project: meet in the hospital cafeteria (Plaza Café) before the forum to socialize and share pizza generously provided by the Here & Now Project. No RSVP—just show up! (Call 206-616-2183 or email email@example.com if you have questions.)
