Spinal Cord Injury Peer Support Community-University Partnership

Our partnership unites students, researchers, and community-based organizations that are inspired to better understand, promote, and optimize spinal cord injury (SCI) peer support programs and services. It is therefore a collaborative effort, using the IKT guiding principles, to ensure the research meets the needs of the community-based SCI organizations.
