PITTSBURGH—A study that provides information and support to older individuals with spinal cord injuries (SCI) and their caregivers is seeking to enroll men and women who are at least 40 years of age, reside within an approximately 50-mile radius of Pittsburgh, and who suffer from adult-onset SCI-related disabilities. The study also seeks to enroll the caregivers who provide those individuals with primary physical or emotional support.

The study is conducted jointly through the University of Pittsburgh's Center for Social and Urban Research and the University of Miami. For more information or to enroll in the study, contact Amy Lustig, study coordinator, at 412-624-2078 or at alustig@ucsur.pitt.edu.
