"One of the many strengths of the Academy is its multidisciplinary membership. As a urologist, the fusion of energy created by the various disciplines focusing on spinal cord injury is tremendous. I find the integrated scientific research possibilities, state-of-the-art annual meetings and networking opportunities invaluable."
