Education / Research
In 2006, the Chapter provided grants to the Kansas City VA Hospital. Every year we contribute to our national organization's research fund. Both organizations follow the National Institute of Health research guidelines. We also help fund continuing education for spinal cord staff when we believe that training will improve the care of our membership. As part of our education program, we often speak with civic groups and schools, providing firsthand accounts on "living life to the fullest" with spinal cord injury or disease.
