Everyone is welcome at ICORD’s first Community Research Night. At this free, informal event, you can learn about the latest spinal cord injury research, find out about currently-recruiting research studies, connect with SCI community groups, and exchange ideas. People with SCI and their friends and family, high school and post-secondary students, and anyone interested in neuroscience, biomechanical engineering, rehabilitation, accessibility, and adapted activities, are especially welcome.
Refreshments provided. Free accessible parking available (SPARC pass required).
