ASCIP is a not for profit interdisciplinary organization devoted to improving care of people living with spinal cord injuries through sharing knowledge and expertise.

"It is a great pleasure to name Paul as the recipient of the 2013 ASCIP Leadership Award. Paul has demonstrated outstanding national leadership in the field of SCI/D through the development of high quality programs, public policy, community advocacy and promotion of expertise among professionals in the field. He is truly deserving of this honor," said Steven Kirshblum, MD, president of ASCIP.

"I urge individuals with disabilities everywhere to continue the tradition of service that is the legacy of United Spinal and its membership, which is to continually challenge the limitations imposed by attitudes, medical technology, society and government," said Tobin.

Under Tobin's leadership, United Spinal and National Spinal Cord Injury Association officially merged in 2011, bringing together over 125 years of history serving the spinal cord injury and disability community and currently representing over 35,000 members nationwide.

Other additions under Tobin's leadership are:

  • acquisition of New Mobility Magazine, a publication dedicated to active lifestyle matters and products for people with disabilities; and
  • the addition of UsersFirst, a program to advocate for enlightened public policies regarding the capacity of people with disabilities and help people with disabilities make informed choices regarding durable medical equipment.

Tobin has invested and continues to invest much energy into collaboration with organizations serving the needs of the spinal cord injury/disease community and of people with disabilities in general.
