The South Carolina Spinal Cord Injury Association understands things change after a spinal cord injury.

This is why we hosted the
Stop, Focus, Connect: Pathway to Pleasure after SCI,
a conference on sexuality and disability in three different cities (Charleston, Columbia, Greenville), on three different days, featuring Mitchell Tepper, 
PhD, MPH, author of Regain That Feeling: Secrets to Sexual Self-Discovery, brings a lifetime of first-hand experience with chronic conditions and disability to his work as an American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) Certified Sexuality Educator, AASECT Certified Sexuality Counselor, sex coach, writer, researcher, public speaker, licensed PAIRS Instructor, and self-proclaimed Prophet of Pleasure.

After breaking his neck in 1982 and a short career in business and finance, Dr. Tepper realigned his life with a mission to end the silence around sexuality and disability.
Since then he has become an internationally recognized expert in the field and leading advocate for comprehensive sexual health care in rehabilitation programs.
Many in the SCI community know Dr. Tepper from his past column, Love Bites, which he wrote for New Mobility magazine for 10 years. He is also a long-time friend of United Spinal Association, having served in various board positions, including president, for NSCIA CT Chapter from 1985-1991 and as First Vice President of NSCIA from 1991-1993.
He lives in Atlanta with his wife Cheryl and they have a 21-year-old son, Jeremy.
