Spinal Cord Injury
Many desired rehabilitation outcomes require that people with disabilities make behavioral changes. Implementing new patterns of behavior pose challenges for everyone, yet people with SCI also face unique personal and environmental barriers that impact this process. Conducting research that targets behavior change for those with SCI requires researchers to consider how barriers (e.g., transportation, inaccessible environments) may impact their ability to participate in research. In this talk, Dr. Froehlich-Grobe will present lessons learned from her extensive experience developing and testing theory-based interventions to promote physical activity, exercise, and healthy diet and weight in people with SCI and other disabilities.
