    Congratulations, Massachusetts Walks Again

    Gathering in the Massachusetts State House to celebrate Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Day was a powerful collaboration of legislators, rehabilitation facilities, consumer organizations, scientists, researchers, and advocates. This year the program "Tell Your Story" featured ways to stress the need for increased research funding in personal and compelling terms.

    The Massachusetts SCI Trust Fund, established in 2004, has received more than $750,000 in state support for spinal cord injury research in Massachusetts. If you are interested in learning more about this initiative, please contact Dr. Eric Ruby whose dogged persistence created this fund and continues focusing on the purpose through initiatives such as the Annual Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Day. Dr. Ruby can be reached at

    Just wondering...when you attend open, do people have to sign some kind of non-disclosure agreement? Because people have said that they were going in the past and would report back but noone ever does. I could understand if folks have to sign a non-disclosure agreement, because if they do: I can understand that but if not, I dont.
