2019 Spinal Cord Injury Wellness Summit


Living Your Best Life after Spinal Cord Injury

The 7th SCI Wellness Summit welcomed over 140 visitors to enjoy a rich program of presentations, workshops and demonstrations, socializing and networking. People with spinal cord injuries, family and friends, and rehab health professionals enjoyed free entry, parking, refreshments, and continuing education credits. Raffle winners took home sports events tickets, yoga classes, adaptive vehicle vouchers, Xbox adaptive controller, Outdoors for All training, Starbucks cards, and a gift certificate to Babeland. We also gave away dozens of Google Home Mini-Assistants thanks to a generous donation from Google. Thank you to all our volunteers, donors and attendees for making this a lively afternoon of learning, connecting, and fun!
