Spinal Cord Injury Association of Kentucky (SCIAK)

In the fall of 2002, practioners, individuals with spinal cord injury, and advocacy groups met and established the Spinal Cord Injury Association of Kentucky (SCIAK). The mission of SCIAK is to serve those affected by spinal cord injury through increased awareness, greater resource availability and support services, enhanced educational and preventative interventions, as well as increased athletic and recreational opportunities.

In addition, to practitioners, individuals with spinal cord injury and corporate sponsors, three organizations in Kentucky were instrumental in the formation of SCIAK, i.e., the Derby City Chapter of the National Spinal Cord Injury Association, Friends for Michael Spinal Cord Injury Organization and Kentucky Wheelchair Athletics Association.
