United Spinal Association Joins as Sponsor of Push Nation Festival 2016
As we reach the eight month countdown to our first annual Push Nation Festival 2016, things are really pushing forward. We are thrilled to announce one of our exceptional sponsors: United Spinal Association.
The United Spinal Association is an organization dedicated to pushing the spinal cord injuries and disorders community towards a better tomorrow. They provide information to patients, loved ones, care providers, and professionals alike; hoping that they can help promote independence and create a support network for themselves.
United Spinal was founded in 1946 by a group of World War II veterans with severe paralysis. They vowed to advocate for civil rights and greater self-independence after receiving poor treatment at their local New York VA hospital. Since then, the group has persevered beyond their SCI/Disorders to live a fulfilling and productive life, spreading the message to others that with the strength to believe it and a bit of courage – others can be happy too.
Today, United Spinal pushes their research and education initiatives. You’ll see them involved in government policy, civil rights, accessibility, architectural design, and competitive athletics. This makes them the prominent non-profit dedicated to helping those patients with spinal cord injuries or disorders.
