SCI Awareness Month in New Jersey!!
As a result of more than 18 months of work, Governor Chris Christie has designated September 2012 as Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month! This is very exciting as this gives us the opportunity to educate the public, prevent injuries, advocate for improved services and research, raise awareness and ultimately improve the lives of those living with SCI. Many organizations supported this idea, including Dr. Wise Young and Dr. Patricia Morton, Kessler Institute, The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, The Sam Schmidt Paralysis Foundation, Disability Rights New Jersey and United Spinal Association. Together, we have been successful!
Please go to our home page and click on the SCI Awareness Banner to read the entire Proclamation.
If anyone has any ideas on how to maximize exposure for this and do anything "concrete," like plans or events, please let me know!
