Our mission is to develop, test, and implement strategies to improve quality of life and physical function through clinical research, community outreach, and other knowledge translation efforts.
Some recent accomplishments include: innovative research in the areas of patient-reported outcome measures, spinal injury prevention and rehabilitation, and hosting quarterly educational seminars for physical medicine healthcare providers. Other activities include, but are not limited to; research support, consulting, educational symposia, grant writing, preparation and funding.
