The month of September was Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month.
There are approximately 200,000 people living with spinal cord injuries (SCI) in the United States. Every 48 seconds in our country, a person becomes paralyzed. A majority of injuries occur from motor vehicle accidents, falls, work-related accidents, and sports injuries.
The Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC) is conducting a poll in recognition of spinal cord injury awareness month–asking participants their opinions on how aware the public is about spinal cord injuries, and what they would like to do to increase awareness.
The poll only takes a few minutes and gives you the opportunity to voice your opinions where they count!
These surveys are an easy way for the RRTC team to hear from the SCI community on certain topics. Information from these surveys will help the RRTC team understand the needs of the community. Please take a moment to take our survey.
