SCI Forum Schedule


Tuesday, June 14, 2016, from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm


Up, Up and Away: SCI & Travel

Many people dream of traveling the world. After sustaining a spinal cord injury, you may think that dream is out of reach. In this forum, however, you can learn how to keep that dream alive! Our panel of four intrepid travelers weaves a rich tapestry of travel throughout the world. Sometimes it is easy, and other times it is complicated and requires careful advanced planning. They will share their stories of traveling as a wheelchair user with SCI, their strategies for planning and researching trips, their tips for what to pack and what to carry, and how they go with Plan B when Plan A falls apart. Travel options have improved for people with disabilities, but the word “accessible” in the travel industry is still no guarantee that lodging, transport, or anything else will work for you. Still, whether you are dreaming of Moscow or Malibu, you will get new insights and ideas at this forum for making your travels successful and (mostly) worry-free. Bring your questions for the Q & A following the panel discussion. Bon Voyage!

5:30 PM - 6:30 PM Meet & Greet! Meet in the Plaza Café (hospital cafeteria) to socialize, network and eat before heading to the forum. No RSVP—just show up! Please call
