13th Annual Working 2 Walk Science & Advocacy Symposium

Push to Walk staff members including Cynthia Templeton, Stephanie Lajam, Vivian Kiggins, David Dias, and Joseph Robbins will be leaving this week to attend the 13th Annual Working 2 Walk Science and Advocacy Symposium in Vancouver Canada.

The Working 2 Walk Symposium brings together consumers, scientists, and interested parties to discuss breakthroughs in the spinal cord injury (SCI) field and ongoing research to find more answers to help those living with SCI.

This conference is a great opportunity for Push to Walk to meet other organizations that also offer nontraditional, cutting edge methods of treatment. All sharing the goal of helping people to maintain and improve their physical health and wellbeing, and reduce secondary complications with the goal of living a more independent life.

An extra special treat for the attending Push to Walk staff will be hearing former Program Director, Tommy Sutor’s presentation, Acute Intermittent Hypoxia: A Scientific & Personal Odyssey. He will also participate in a panel discussion during the second day of the symposium.

Vivian Kiggins, Executive Director for Push to Walk stated “it is a privilege to be able to attend the conference and be able to meet some of the most prestigious individuals working on behalf of those with SCI. I look forward to sharing this experience with the Push to Walk community of staff members and clients when I return.”
