      In addition to the General and Breakout Sessions, we are pleased to offer evening activities for networking and relaxation. U2FP will host a Networking Reception at the Marriott on Sunday evening. Our conference partner, Kennedy Krieger Institute, will host a "Hope Through Motion" Open House on Monday evening, with transportation provided to and from the KKI facility in Baltimore. There is no charge to attend the reception (dinner is included!), but you must register separately from the Working 2 Walk registration.

      Join the therapists, physicians, and scientists from the International Center for Spinal Cord Injury (ICSCI) at the
      Hope Through Motion
      dinner and reception to be held in conjunction with Working 2 Walk 2015.

      • Become familiar with our cutting edge activity-based restorative therapies (ABRT)
      • Speak with experts in the field of spinal cord injury and recovery
      • View demonstrations of state-of-the-art therapeutic activities, including:
        • Locomotor gait training
        • Functional electrical stimulation (FES)
        • Robotic upper extremity motor training
        • Exosketeton demonstration
        • Whole body vibration
        • Aquatics and wellness center
        • Latest in seating techniques

      • Poster presentations on the latest research
      • Socialize with colleagues, friends and family
      • Enjoy a buffet Italian dinner from one of Baltimore's leading restaurants and drinks in
        the Kennedy Krieger Outpatient Center

      Additionally, attendees will be able to view the Institute's Aquatic Therapy Program, which utilizes multiple pools with a range of warm temperatures and therapeutic treatment options and features, including:

      • Built-in treadmills for retraining and observing gait patterns
      • Video systems for monitoring therapy activities
      • Multiple jets used for resistance
      • Floors that operate on lifts to allow barrier-free entry and exit for easy access by patients in wheelchairs

      Complimentary valet or self parking is available in the Outpatient Center garage. Bus transportation will be available from the hotel for a limited number of persons on a first come, first serve basis.
      Schedule:

              The cutoff date for booking at the group rate in the hotel is September 4, 2015, or until the block has sold out, whichever comes first. Please get your rooms booked as soon as possible! LINK

                            Ireland is too far for sure. We're all anxious to hear about this research and clinical trial. I'm glad Dr. Ahlfors will be able to present information for us.

                              I imagine the presentation by Dr. Jeffery with Chondroitinase and pet dogs will be quite interesting too. I'm anxious for that one!
