United Spinal New Beginning BackPack Program

United Spinal’s New Beginning is a nationwide initiative that empowers individuals to overcome the wide-range of challenges that accompany living with a spinal cord injury or disorder. The BackPack serves to help people find quality healthcare and resources; employment opportunities and education; choose the proper adaptive equipment and home modifications; locate peer support groups; and find a new beginning. United Spinal Association is distributing backpacks to people newly injured or diagnosed that are leaving hospitals and rehabilitation facilities.
