This conference Fundashon Alton Paas brought together doctors and practitioners from 3 continents – USA, Europe and Latin America and from the Caribbean islands such as Bonaire, Jamaica and also our local experts – to share their expertise around 10 topics about spinal cord injury. Dr Oswald Steward, the founding director of the Reeve-Irvine Research centre was our distinguished keynote speaker and had addressed a topic about cure. Within this group we’ve had two speakers who have spinal cord injury – one is a doctor and Ambassador for the Christopher (Superman) and Dana Reeve Foundation and the other is a businessman and board member of the Association for Spinal Cord Injury Organization Netherlands who can speak directly from their experience.

The conference was a success and Fundashon Alton Paas is gratefull for this impactfull milestone.
