Faculty and staff from The Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Center for Spinal Cord Injury at the Kennedy Krieger Institute and the International Neuro-Rehabilitation Institute will discuss diagnosis and common issues patients with TM face including pain, rehabilitation needs, bowel and bladder problems, sleep and mental health. 

Topics will also cover everyday symptom management and the latest research trends, including the status of stem cell therapy.
