COVID-19 has changed our lives dramatically in the last seven months. From constant masking to a jump in telemedicine to quarantining, everyone has seen major disruptions to their daily routines. But what does COVID-19 mean specifically for people with a spinal cord injury (SCI)?

In this forum, Aaron Bunnell, MD, assistant professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, and Jeanne Hoffman PhD, professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine and director of the Northwest Regional SCI System, will discuss what we know and do not know about COVID-19 and spinal cord injury.

The forum will cover Bunnell’s work in UW Medicine’s post COVID-19 telehealth clinic, the potential issues for people with SCI and a diagnosis of COVID-19, the pros and cons of in-person routine care and strategies for minimizing exposure from caregivers.

The forum will take place on Zoom. Register in advance to receive the Zoom meeting link.
