Research Opportunity: Developing a Spinal Cord Injury Cognitive Screening


The University of Washington has a new research study to investigate the effectiveness of a screening test for thinking skills with people who have had a spinal cord injury (SCI). If you participate, you’ll complete hands-free testing in person at Harborview Medical Center or University of Washington Medical Center, OR via video-conference Zoom. Participants will be compensated $75 for their time, and the testing will take approximately 3 hours.

To learn more about the study, please reach out at (206) 744-5196 or scicog@uw.edu.

Thank You, Shelby!

What can we say? Funny, sassy, smart as can be, and (according to our clients) a tough but loving therapist who pushes people to their best. For almost 4 years Shelby has supported clients through their challenges and triumphs here at Pushing Boundaries. Now we get to support *her* as she moves on to UW Harborview, where she will gain valuable experience to help further her education in Physical Therapy. We are so sad to see her go, yet so grateful we had her as long as we did.

Here’s to Shelby- She’ll ALWAYS be a member of the PB family. Congrats, Shelby!
