The Big Picture:

Knowledge in Motion (KiM) Lecture and Webcast Series is a dynamic lecture with live webcast hosted by SNERSCIC for individuals living with SCI, their friends and family members, and health care professionals. The KiM program allows the SCI community both locally and worldwide to interact directly with leaders in the field of SCI for cutting edge research, rehabilitation, treatment, and quality of life, in terms easy-to-understand.

This pioneering program began in 2006 (previously called Stepping Forward- Staying Informed), at which time there was also an annual community SCI research conference.

The Details:

The KiM lecture takes place at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston, MA. Each lecture is also available as a free online webcast with the ability to submit questions.Each lecture/live webcast features one speaker discussing a topic of high importance to spinal cord injury.

This 90-minute session begins with the guest speaker presenting their work for 45 minutes, followed by a 45-minute open discussion where audience members are able to speak at length with the presenter.

A light dinner is served before each lecture.
