PeerConnect: Chronic Pain

July 13, 2019 @ 12:00 pm CDT - 1:00 pm CDT

Pain is all too familiar for many individuals with spinal cord injuries/disabilities. But pain does not have to define you. This PeerConnect session is open to discuss pain management tips from your peers and ways to help live successfully with chronic pain.


BACKBONES PeerConnect is a program offering monthly online meetups for people in the spinal cord injury and disease (SCI/D) community looking to connect with their peers. Whether you have many years post-injury, or if you are new to the community, PeerConnect is a great way to meet others, share your story, and learn from other people with similar experiences to you.

PeerConnect meetups will be offered monthly via Zoom Video Conferencing. Up to 10 participants with SCI/D will be allowed to register via EventBrite. There will be a waitlist – in the case a registered participant must cancel we will offer the spot to the next person on the list. Participants will be emailed the meeting link a few days prior to the session and the morning of.

PeerConnect sessions will be started and moderated by a person with SCI/D who has experience with peer support and mentoring.
