United Spinal sets date for Roll on Capitol Hill
NEW YORK – The United Spinal Association and advocates from its membership division, National Spinal Cord Injury Association, will gather in Washington, D.C., June 22-25 for Roll on Capitol Hill. The goal of United Spinal’s signature event: to shape policies that impact the health, independence and quality of life of people living with spinal cord injuries and disorders. “Roll on Capitol Hill presents a unique forum for our members and chapter leaders to constructively address disability issues that are impacting their lives, for good or bad, face to face with their representatives,” stated Joe Gaskins, president and CEO of United Spinal, in a press release. Those issues include ensuring increased access to needed DME, medical supplies and related services, prescription drugs and outpatient therapies; and expanding home- and community-based services and supports.
