This web site supports the Peripheral Neuropathy
Support Group of the DC Metro Area. Our goal is to help PN patients and
their families and friends throughout the Washington DC Region.
(last update: 9/18/2018)
At the current time, we are the only such group in the DC area, with some people traveling quite a distance. There are hundred of thousands of PN patients in the DC area, with a like number of caregivers. Many others are impacted when, as symptoms intensify, patients cannot maintain their activities, including work. One of our goals is to help other groups form so they can be closer to their participants. In June we heard from someone thinking about starting one in the Baltimore Veterans Association hospital. We hope help them if the VA allows them some meeting space. The Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy has some "how-to" material on how to set one up.
Our Last Meeting: 2018-Sept-8

Plus some other things. We talked about it some at the July 2017 Pot Luck (Ya Should a Been There!) and will talk more at our Saturday meetings.
