Lifestyle Management in Spinal Cord Injury March 4th, 2015

New RHI Research Study, seeking participants:

Lifestyle Management in Spinal Cord Injury: This pilot study is modeled on a successful lifestyle change program conducted at the University of Pittsburgh.  Based on this program, we are teaching new ways to manage food intake, how to make lifestyle adjustments and adding exercise designed specifically for people with spinal cord injuries.  This program will begin about March 2015 and run for twelve months.  For the first twelve weeks, the group will meet every week, with optional exercise periods supervised by a licensed physical therapist conducted in our gym.  Blood samples to assess for blood sugar, cholesterol and fat levels will be collected at the beginning, middle and end of the study.  At twelve weeks, meeting frequency will be reduced to bi-weekly, then reduced to monthly meetings at six months.  Katherine Stenson, MD (PI)
