Dr. Nicole Dipiro, a PhD student on the Rehabilitaiton Research and Training Center, has defended her dissertation project entitiled "Effects of Aerobic Exercise Training on Walking and Health-Related Outcomes in Individuals with Chronic Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury".
Our research team was invited to present at the annual conference of National Association of Rehabilitation Research and Training Centers (NARRTC) in Alexandria, VA on April 24-25, 2014. Dr. James Krause delivered a presentation entitled “Chronic disease prevalence in a cohort of persons with spinal cord injury”. This study assessed lifetime self-reported prevalence of seven chronic health conditions among a cohort of adults with chronic SCI, and examined the relationship of those conditions with injury severity and years post-injury. Dr. Krause also presented “Stability of Vocational Interests after Recent Spinal Cord Injury”, which investigated stability of vocational interests among persons with SCI across three times of measurement among people with traumatic SCI, and found their vocational interests were likely to change more than indicated in earlier studies.
