Nick and Franklin, NorCal SCI co-founders, are thrilled to present at the Thurs., Feb. 8th meeting of the Berkeley Spinal Network on their work thus far and what their vision for the Northern California SCI Community is all about and how they plan to collaborate and support any organization so that people living with a Spinal Cord Injury/Disorder in Northern California thrive and live productively.

Nick and Franklin launched NorCal SCI as they were alarmed and frustrated by the declining length of stays at Northern California (as well as a nationwide trend) SCI Rehab Centers and the effect it was having on the outcomes of the newly-injured.  In 2007, the nationwide average length of stay was 70 days.  Ten years later, it went down to 35 days. and even worse, it went down to 25 days in California. 

"A significant part of our work has always been about getting in front of people whose lives have been affected by SCI as well as those individual and organizations throughout Northern California who are supporting those with SCI," explained Nick and Franklin.  "Berkeley is the center of the disability rights movement and the Berkeley Spinal Network has a robust and active community of individuals with SCI that we are looking forward to meeting."

There will be a door prize for a Google Home Mini as well as other giveaways at this meeting.  Of course, as always, free food and refreshments will also be provided.

The meeting will be held from 6-8:30 p.m. at the Ed Roberts Campus, 3075 Adeline, Berkeley.  For information, please contact Walter Delson at walter@everydayabilities.org or by calling (510) 693-2689.
