Study: Community characteristics affect health of residents with spinal cord injury

Researchers at the Penn Graduate School of education found that community-built environmental influence has an effect on the health of people with spinal cord injury, according to results published recently in Archives of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.

Amanda Botticello, PhD, MPH, senior research scientist in Outcomes & Assessment Research at Kessler Foundation and colleagues based the study on survey data from the federally funded Spinal Cord Injury System (SCIMS) database (n = 503) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) data.
