Pediatric Brain & Spinal Cord Injury Program - The Ryder Trauma Center (RTC) at the University of Miami/ Jackson Memorial Medical Center is one of the busiest trauma centers in the country. Annually we provide care to over 300 children and adolescents less than 16 years of age with traumatic brain & spinal cord injury (TBSCI). The Pediatric Neurotrauma Program was established in September of 2001. Over the last few years we have tracked all children admitted to the Children's Hospital and UM/JMMC with a TBSCI and have identified the most important problems they encounter in their acute and follow-up care.

United Spinal Association - United Spinal Association is a national 501©(3) nonprofit membership organization formed in 1946 by paralyzed veterans who pioneered the disability rights movement. Their mission is to improve the quality of life of all Americans living with spinal cord injuries and disorders (SCI/D), including multiple sclerosis, spina bifida, Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS), and post polio.
