Founded in 1948, the National Spinal Cord Injury Association is dedicated to improving the quality of life for hundreds of thousands of Americans living with the results of spinal cord injury and disease (SCI/D) and their families. This number grows by thirty newly injured people each day. NSCIA educates and empowers survivors of spinal cord injury and disease to achieve and maintain the highest levels of independence, health and personal fulfillment. It fulfills this mission by providing an innovative Peer Support Network and by raising awareness about spinal cord injury and disease through education. Its educational programs are developed to address information and issues important to its constituency, policy makers, the general public, and the media, and include injury prevention, improvements in medical, rehabilitative and supportive services, research and public policy formulation.
