Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network (GSRN) is offering a brand-new Relationships and Intimacy Education Series designed specifically for people living with spinal cord injuries, covering everything from anatomy and fertility to medications and devices. Classes will be led by Good Shepherd clinicians and individuals with spinal cord injuries. There will be breakout sessions for men and women, as well as peer-led breakout sessions.
