Benefits of Becoming Involved or Attending a Meeting
The primary purpose of San Diego Polio Survivors is to share information relating to polio that would be beneficial to our
regular members or guests. The information we provide is collected from: guest speakers, other members's experiences, current
and past periodicals, web sites, and published works related to the treatment of, and for, polio and post polio syndrome (PPS).
Anyone can become a member. If you don't live in San Diego County you can become a "virtual" member, thanks
to the internet, by contacting us. You will be added to our electronic mailing list and will be notified by e-mail when new
information is posted on our web site.

Supporting and Educating Each Other
|Polio as a child
Sometimes when someone experiences a disability or medical condition they feel as though they are surviving the condition
alone. Family members and friends have difficulty understanding what the survivor is feeling and experiencing. By joining
our group you will be able to meet others who also have experienced polio and may now exhbit symptoms of Post Polio Syndrome
(PPS). You can learn from their experiences. You will soon realize that you are not alone.
We also have have a library of literature relating to polio and PPS available for anyone who would like it.
At most meetings we have expert guest speakers such as physicians, physical and breathing therapists, and counselors that
provide current information revelent to the group. Other times members themselves make presentations on information they have
accquired from conferences and personal experiences.
