If you are interested in helping with Fact Sheet development, or have a topic of interest you would like to see covered in a future Fact Sheet, please contact Rachel Tappan!  

SCI Health and Wellness white paper

Meghan Joyce, PT, DPT, NCS, Cathy Larson, PT, PhD, and Rachel Tappan, PT, DPT, NCS have written a white paper titled "Bridging the Gap Between Physical Therapy and Long-Term Physical Activity and Training in People with SCI:  Recommendations from the SCI Special Interest Group".
