The Mount Sinai SCI outpatient Do-It! Program was developed in 1995 to facilitate community reintegration of patients with spinal cord injuries. Individual therapies plus group classes are designed to maximize functional outcomes. The program serves individuals with SCI from the five boroughs of New York city, Long island and Westchester, and we follow a highly diverse population in terms of socioeconomic, educational and employment backgrounds. DO-It! is a unique and dynamic program with a holistic and integrated approach to helping people with SCI to move forward in their lives.
