Gunshot wounds are the third-leading cause of spinal cord injury (SCI) in the United States, only next to road traffic accidents and fall from heights, accounting for up to 14% of all spinal cord injuries. Here at Mount Sinai SCI, we recently started an in-person gun violence support group for individuals living with SCI, in an effort to raise awareness surrounding the issue of needless and senseless gun violence in our communities.
Our support group is held on the last Wednesday of every month. Light Refreshments are served. Contact Garrison.Redd@mountsinai.org if you are interested in attending.
