Our quarterly magazine covers all the hot topics relating to living with a spinal cord injury (SCI), including new technologies, developments in research, and stories about people with SCI who have found ways to overcome challenges and thrive. It’s an entertaining and informative read that was created for people living with SCI and their families.
