Do you know the unique needs of people with spinal cord injury (SCI), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and burn injury? Are you seeking trusted strategies and user-friendly resources to support those living with these injuries and their families? In this webinar, we will start by exploring what it is like to have an SCI, TBI, or burn injury. We then showcase the variety of free research-based resources that the Model Systems Knowledge Translation Center (MSKTC; has developed in collaboration with the SCI, TBI, and Burn Model System researchers. Both the MSKTC and Model Systems are funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research, Administration for Community Living, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
