Shepherd Center Debuts Redesigned Website for Patient Education

MyShepherdConnection.org provides resources for patients, families and caregivers.

Shepherd Center has launched a mobile responsive redesign of MyShepherdConnection.org, an educational website providing resources for patients, families, caregivers and healthcare professionals.

The new mobile-responsive design allows the content to adjust to size of the user's screen. “With more than half of Shepherd Center web visitors accessing the hospital's websites on mobile devices, this new design will provide a much more user-friendly browsing experience,” said Jane Sanders, Shepherd Center’s director of public relations and digital marketing.

My Shepherd Connection features educational materials on spinal cord injury, brain injury, disorders of consciousness, stroke and multiple sclerosis. The website includes printable tips and resources, videos demonstrating techniques and links to additional in-depth resources. Additional links provide information on upcoming events, research participation, injury prevention, professional education and giving to Shepherd Center.

If you have questions or comments about the redesigned site, email them to information@shepherd.org.
