View the slides PDF or PowerPoint.

This webinar introduced participants to the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation’s Paralysis Resource Center (PRC), a comprehensive national source of free information, services and programs for individuals with paralysis and their families and caregivers. The PRC provides information on paralysis caused by any condition, including spinal cord injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, spina bifida, traumatic brain injury, and cerebral palsy. 

Participants heard about the PRC’s Information Specialists, who are available to answer questions about living with paralysis and assist with locating resources, and the Peer & Family Support Program, a national mentoring program for people living with paralysis and their family members. The written materials available through the PRC were discussed as well as the resources available on the Reeve Foundation’s website. The PRC’s Military & Veterans Program, national lending library and online community will also be highlighted.
