PAR-QoL Expert Spotlight - Answers On-Line
Dr. Brett Smith

The PAR-QoL team held an expert spotlight event with

Dr. Brett Smith from Loughborough University, UK. 

Between October 11 and November 11 (2013), visitors to the PAR-QoL website submitted a question to Dr. Smith to obtain his thoughts about spinal cord injury (SCI) and quality of life research (or other related research).

 Selected questons were forwarded to Dr. Smith for his response, and are now posted - which you can see here.

We are extremely grateful for Dr. Smith's participation in this event and thank him for his excellent answers!


As well, we want to thank everyone who submitted a question and please stay tuned to upcoming Expert Spotlight Events in 2014! 

Dr. Brett Smith
