LASCI (Life After Spinal Cord Injury)

His desire to make a positive difference in the lives of people with disabilities led him to create LASCI. Established in 2010, LASCI is a free peer support program sponsored by Edgepark Medical Supplies and UroMed. LASCI offers a variety of resources for individuals, their families and caregivers, including online and on-site events throughout the year.|
