Learn About The Late Effects of Polio And More
Event TimeCheck details
Many people think of polio as a forgotten disease, but there are thousands of people in Australia today who contracted polio in childhood (whether here or overseas). Many of them may be experiencing the Late Effects of Polio, which can include increasing muscle weakness, debilitating fatigue, intolerance to cold, chronic pain and problems with sleep and breathing.
Survivors of polio, along with their families and carers, are invited to attend a free information session. Up for discussion, the Late Effects of Polio, how to get more out of your health professional, and self-management strategies to help you stay well.
There will also be time for Q&A, and opportunities to make connections with other polio survivors in our area.
