PeerConnect: Traveling with SCI

June 8, 2019 @ 12:00 pm CDT - 1:00 pm CDT

Nobody likes the hassles of traveling, but it can be extra challenging for those with spinal cord injuries/disabilities. From planes, train, and automobiles, this PeerConnect session is for you to discuss all the tips and tricks that make traveling an easier process so you don’t have to worry about it!


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.
