Sue Hinze, Brian Gran, and doctoral candidate Anne Bryden collaborate on DoD grant

In collaboration with Kim Anderson (Department of Physical Medicine and MetroHealth), the Department of Sociology’s Anne Bryden, Brian Gran and Sue Hinze recently learned that the Department of Defense Spinal Cord Injury Research Program is funding their project entitled, “Perspectives on Recovery and Interventions to Restore Function Across the First Year of Spinal Cord Injury.” The $803,000 award supports research that compares needs of Veterans who have experienced spinal cord injury, as well as needs of those Veterans’ caregivers, with civilians and their caretakers, during the first year of injury as they attempt to reintegrate into the community.
