Paralyzed Veterans Of America Education Foundation
DescriptionOriginally founded by a band of service members who came home from World War II with spinal cord injuries, they created an Organization dedicated to serving veterans and to medical research, advocacy, and civil rights for all people with disabilities. Today, the Foundation supports educational projects that serve individuals with spinal cord injuries and disease, as well as their families and caregivers. The Foundation provides funding for projects in six areas: consumer and community education; professional development and education to improve the knowledge and competencies of health professionals who serve the spinal cord injury/disability community; research utilization and dissemination; assistive technology; conferences and symposia, and consumer guides. Eligible applicants include members of academic institutions, health care providers and organizations, and consumer advocates and organizations throughout the United States and Canada are eligible to apply.
