Established in 2003, NYC Spinal was formerly known as The Greater NY Chapter of the National Spinal Cord Injury Association (NYCSCIA). It is now the NYC Chapter of United Spinal Association dedicated to helping people rebuild their lives after spinal cord injury and disease. NYC Spinal members enjoy the benefit of being connected to a nationwide network of chapters and support groups. In addition to participating in national initiatives such as United Spinal's annual Roll on Capital Hill, where members try to encourage lawmakers to be mindful of the issues of accessibility and the specific needs of people with disabilities as they enact legislation, NYC Spinal sponsors a variety of local programs and events geared toward helping people with spinal cord injuries maximize their independence and increase their quality of life.
