With the outbreak of COVID-19 it is uncertain times for all of us. At the Spinal Research Institute we find ourselves reviewing how we work and operate. Being a smaller organisation, we can more easily adjust the way we work and connect as a team by moving our interactions online. However in response to the Government’s advice, which aims to slow the spread of the virus and help protect the most vulnerable in our community, including people with SCI, we have postponed our supporter events planned for the coming months. In time, when appropriate, we will reschedule, but for now we will connect with you via phone, email, our newsletter and social media channels.
This of course does not mean that we are pausing the work that we do, but it does mean we are developing alternative ways in which we can deliver our programs to the spinal cord injury community. We are fortunate that our largest program – the Spinal Cord Research Hub – is an online platform, which will continue to enable researchers and clinicians to connect and collaborate nationally and internationally.
If you have any questions about any of our programs, please don’t hesitate to get in touch via email, and I encourage you to follow us on social media to stay up-to-date with our work and progress.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your loved ones good health.
