The podcast feeding the movement to cure paralysis

Episode 58: Wisconsin Champion

Guests: Jimmy Anderson

Jimmy Anderson is a state representative in the Wisconsin general Assembly who also lives with an SCI. Jason and Matthew talk with Jimmy about his education, injury and how they led him into politics.

They also discuss the effort Jimmy is championing to create a $3 million Wisconsin SCI research program. This push for smart SCI research funding is modeled after similar legislation U2FP’s Cure Advocacy Network has helped pass in other states. Jimmy gives an update on the current status of this proposed funding, where the initiative is headed and how to support it so that it becomes the law.
