The CHOICES Project brings together leading researchers from across Canada with the aim of improving the lives, health and care of Canadians living with spinal cord injury (SCI).

Our research examines benefits to cardiovascular (CV) health in individuals with chronic SCI through optimized exercise and targeted education. We will determine whether educating health care providers on specific CV problems associated with SCI will help to reduce the financial burden of care, and improve treatment of people with SCI. By providing important information on exercise training and targeted education to clinicians, this project will reduce chronic disease and improve cardiovascular health for Canadians living with SCI.
