The final issue of forward for 2014 is filled with lots of tips and advice to ensure you stay fit and healthy throughout the festive season! In the Health & Fitness special section, you will find information from SCI people about how they keep fit, nutritional advice and ways to ensure you maintain a healthy diet, and updates about different relaxation techniques, including Mindfulness and Pilates.

SIA’s 40th Anniversary year has certainly been one to remember and we have provided you with an overview of the many celebratory events and activities that have taken place throughout the year. 

If you were unable to attend this year’s Annual General Meeting and Technology Conference, fear not, as there is a full update in this issue, containing key insights from experts in the field of assistive technology.

You will also be able to find out more about the SCI-PSP Top 10 research questions, which are listed in this issue, in addition to the latest news and updates from SIA on our key services. 

The nomination period for the 2015 Rebuilding Lives Awards is now open, so make sure you nominate someone for an award!  Simply fill in the nomination form in the magazine and return it to SIA House. 

Looking to the year ahead, we really want to hear your thoughts about forward.  We’d like to know what you think of the magazine and how we can make it an even more enjoyable read for you.  Please complete the forward survey, either the paper format or online (see the Survey Monkey link on page 27), and let us know what you would like to read about in 2015! 

We hope you enjoy the festive period and enjoy reading the December issue of forward.
