UBC Okanagan SCI Research Day

On April 24, the Centre for Chronic Diseases Prevention and Management and Centre for Health Behavior Change hosted the UBCO SCI Research Day, bringing together researchers, community members, and experts in spinal cord injury (SCI) from four different labs on the Okanagan Campus. The event was marked by a keynote speech from Paralympic champion Josh Dueck, who shared his personal journey and experiences.

The event also featured an insightful panel discussion with researchers, healthcare professionals, and individuals living with SCI and MS, who shared their diverse experiences with research. These discussions facilitated an exchange of ideas among researchers, practitioners, and community members.
