Event description

Description

REGISTRATION DEADLINE EXTENDED! SPOTS STILL AVAILABLE!

Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute, GUSU (Get Up Stand Up) and MNSCIA (Minnesota Spinal Cord Injury Association) are bringing together people with spinal cord injuries/dysfunction, their families and/or care providers to engage in learning more about optimal care, health and wellness opportunities.


Course Objectives

Through lectures, panel discussions and exhibits, the day’s objectives are to:

•Learn about current local, national and international spinal cord injury research.

•Discuss and learn about the many options to become more physically, mentally, and socially active.

•Discuss and share experiences about abilities or equipment used for tasks such as bowel care, bathing, sexual intimacy, personal care attendants (PCA), return to school, and return to work.

Our Key note speaker is Joe Stone of the Joe Stone Foundation. Joe sustained a C7 spinal cord injury in 2010 while speed flying and crashing into a mountainside in Missoula, MT. He did his inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation back home in MN at CKRI. Over the course of his healing, he has engaged in exploring and determining the true versus perceived limits of his physical disability. The Joe Stone Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit. Its mission is to help merge the disabled and able-bodied communities through activities that can be experienced together regardless of their ability level. The foundation organizes and participates in outdoor recreation camps and events providing demonstrations and instruction on the latest adapted recreation gear and equipment. The Joe Stone Foundation is a leading provider of resources and support to others seeking to discover new possibilities in their lives after a challenging life-changing event.
