Let the full Adobe file load and you can read the entire curriculum. This year includes a special course on SCI Nursing (taught by Margaret Clarke--a good clinical trials nurse too!). Another two day course is on self advocacy for the SCI consumer (that's us!)

The sooner you register the cheaper the entrance fee. There are also break away courses on travel, work, seating issues, etc. And since they now hold these in Virginia Beach during Neptune Festival Week--you can bring the kids too. For professionals CEUs are offered through the Medical College of Virginia.

I met Dr Young for the first time at one of these symposiums and they still keep an eye on me when I head down that way. I've been trouble ever since.

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."
