    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.


      I tried the site but I didn't find it very informative, thank you you though


        Hi kguffey84! I'm not sure what information your specifically looking for. There is information on the site regarding registration, hotels, schedule and some links to previous W2Ws. I posted this in the Leg & Advocacy Forum this morning and will post it for you here as well. The W2W thread on the A&L forum can be found here...

        Hope this helps!

        Kate will once again be blogging W2W. As in the past, information is presented which has not been published and researchers ask attendees not to tape or take photos of their presentations until they have had an opportunity to do so. In order for you to learn about all of the research being presented, it's really best to be there. We will do our best to disseminate information, but respect the requests of researchers.

        Here is the list of presenters –

        Stephen Davies, Ph.D., Associate Professor – University of Colorado
        Peter Gorman, M.D., Associate Professor – Univ. of MD, Director SCI Service – Kernan Hospital
        Steven Hinderer, M.D., MS, PT, Medical Director – Walk the Line
        Phillip Horner, Ph.D., Assoc. Professor – University of Washington
        Peter Wilderotter & Susan Howley – Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation
        Douglas Kerr, M.D., Ph.D., Associate Professor – John Hopkins Medicine
        Naomi Kleitman, Ph.D., Program Dir., Repair and Plasticity – NIH/NINDS
        John MacDonald, M.D., Ph.D, ICSCI – Kennedy Krieger Institute
        W. Barry McKay, BS, REEGT, Dir. Of Research Studies – University of Louisville
        Edward Nieshoff, M.D., Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan
        Edward Wirth, M.D., Ph.D., Medical Director – Geron Corporation
        Wise Young, M.D., Ph.D., Director Keck Center – Rutgers University

        We’re finally going to be talking about HUMAN clinical trials! We will also have a session on understanding the hurdles scientists face when organizing a clinical trial and discuss how they will measure recovery. There will also be a session on current rehab/recovery therapies from 3 doctors from 3 different rehab facilities.

        The schedule includes time after the presentations for attendees to ask questions and a cocktail party and breakout sessions are also planned, which will give everyone an opportunity to meet. A Day at the Races is scheduled for the third day, hosted by the Sam Schmidt Paralysis Foundation.

        This is a really exciting year for paralysis research and I hope you can join us. I know of a number of people from CC have already registered and I look forward to seeing some old friends and meeting new ones. Please check out the website for the complete schedule and registration details.

              i do hope they will ask some of the doctors when are we going to see the Reults or is it away to keep us in hope ? ref a other 5 years or 10 or more this is not to you it is at the researchers so stop the BULL s--t and show us what they have got if they want us to gave money and donate you like to see where the money is going i am sorry if this language is strong but it is the not knowing and than some one will come a long and say things that they can not back up and we can not see ? this is all good for the ones that see these testing but do you not think it is a bout time they let the cat out of the bag
