Stem Cell Therapy for Traumatic Spinal Cord Injury


Presented by Alicia Fuhrman, MD, Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, University of Washington.

In this presentation, Dr. Fuhrman will help you understand this complex and rapidly expanding field of medicine. She will start by clarifying what stem cells are and how they are used in different treatments. She will then summarize what the research can tell us about whether these treatments are effective. Finally, she will discuss how to recognize and avoid scams and how to decide about treatment for yourself or counsel your patients. 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: meet in the hospital cafeteria (Plaza Café ) to socialize and eat (buy or bring dinner) before the forum. No RSVP--just show up! Call 206-616-2183 or email nwrscis@uw.edu if you have questions.
