Our comprehensive collection of Spinal Cord Injury Resources is growing. Here are two recent additions: from the National Paralysis Resource Center (NPRC) and from the Model Systems Knowledge Translation Center (MSKTC). They are especially helpful for people with new injuries and members of their families.
The National Paralysis Resource Center (NPRC) recently published a new series of resources for the underserved communities living with disabilities, including African Americans, Hispanics, American Indians and Native Alaskans, and Pacific Islander/Native Hawaiians. Each page provides links to federal and local disability initiatives alongside information about non-profit organizations and advocacy efforts that support specific minority groups.
As comics and comic culture have become increasingly mainstream, so has the use of comics to share information. The Model Systems Knowledge Translation Center (MSKTC) has recently released three new infocomics specifically designed to reach people with spinal cord injury. The subjects are bowel function, respiratory management and pregnancy. download each of them here.
