Contribution to Science

Consumer education to empower people to take an active role in their healthcare, explore research opportunities and all programs related to improving the lives of people with and affected by SCI are priorities of both roles she fulfills as a Sr Project Coordinator and SCIACT Board Member. Notably the development and promotion of the Spinal Cord Injury Peer Health Coach role spans both.

Multiple presentations and posters have been produced relating to her work. You may view some of them here.
