KARRN and KY Congress on Spinal Cord Injury member (and overall Rock Star), Heidi McKenzie is launching her own line of fashionable, adaptable clothing. This adaptable jeans line is just the first of many designs she and her team are working on to combine both fashion and function for people in wheelchairs. She believes people with disabilities should look good and feel good too and her new company is working hard to make that happen.

We would like to thank the Frances Hollis Brain Foundation for recently funding a small KARRN grant that will allow us to purchase adaptive health equipment for individuals with disabilities in Appalachia.
Please follow the link to a new SCI resource handout: “Health Considerations in Spinal Cord Injury: A Handbook for People with SCI”, which was collaboratively developed by Dr. Sara Salles of the University of Kentucky, Dr. Michael Stillman of the University of Louisville, and Alison Smith of the University of Louisville.
