Inclusive Design & Climate Change Resilience:
Establishing a Beachhead with Southeast Florida's Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Community
Southeast Florida is a lighthouse for people living with spinal cord injury (SCI), and also a locus of risk for climate hazards such as hurricanes and flooding. An understanding of climate hazard needs and experiences in people with SCI can inform solutions that, if fit to the needs of this community, will readily scale laterally and vertically. This presentation will discuss the results of a research study that came from a participatory relationship between Miller School of Medicine researchers and local SCI non-profit organizations showing attitudes, knowledge, and utilization of hurricane preparedness resources. The research team will then share the expansion of their approach in 2022 afforded by U-LINK Resilience Challenge funding.
This series is brought to you by Office of Dean Henri R. Ford at the Miller School of Medicine in conjunction with the Miami Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI). It highlights innovative, collaborative, translational research being conducted by University of Miami investigators and teams and their collaborators across all disciplines.
