Paralyzed Veterans of America Education Foundation
From coordinating workshops for health professionals to producing educational materials to sponsoring fellowships in spinal cord medicine, the Paralyzed Veterans of America Education Foundation (PVA) helps develop tools that share spinal cord injury and disease (SCI/D) knowledge and improve the lives of those with SCI/D.

- Assistive technology, including the development of teaching tools or pilot programs that demonstrate innovative approaches for the use of assistive devices
- Conferences and symposia that provide education and collaboration opportunities for members of the SCI/D community
- Consumer Guides to develop companion consumer information guides
