A Day for Spinal Cord Injury & Conditions Impairing Mobility

A Day for Spinal Cord Injury & Conditions Impairing Mobility

The Illinois chapter of the United Spinal Association is hosting a free event to discuss issues that many individuals with differing mobility impairments face daily. Many of the subjects will be relevant to multiple disabilities, and everyone who would like to learn more about these issues is welcome (including family/caregivers of individuals with disabilities). Remote attendance is possible. (Once people register, a Zoom link will be sent to anyone electing to attend remotely.) Lunch is included for those who attend in person.

The event will include speakers on vocational rehabilitation (preparing for/obtaining employment, ADA protections, etc.), service dogs (SIT Service Dogs), wound care, adaptive driving and accessible parking, bladder care/medical complications, and a panel discussion about living with a disability. We will also have a speaker from the SI Center for Independent Living.
