Complementary and Alternative Medicine in Spinal Cord Injury & Disorders

By Juan Asanza, MD, acting assistant professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine and staff physician in the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Dr. Asanza will describe common CAM therapies used in SCI/D and discuss current research and evidence. In addition, he will assess the use of selected supplements and vitamins in SCI/D care. There will be a question and answer session following the presentation.

Continuing education certificates will be available to PTs and OTs: 1.5 credit hours.

5:30 - 6:30 PM Meet & Greet! Meet in the hospital cafeteria (Plaza Café) to socialize, network and eat (buy or bring dinner) before the Forum. No RSVP—just show up! Please call 206-616-2183 or email nwrscis@uw.edu if you have questions.
