CPPO Support Groups

Attend a SUPPORT GROUP (click for further information). If none fits your bill, maybe you can start one. We give plenty of help and encouragement if you do so. Support Groups are the BEST way to receive encouragement and education about post-polio and its effects. Everyone’s polio story has details of the same condition, including different ideas for coping. Contact Mitzi Tolman at mtolman@eastersealscolorado.org for more information on a group.


CPPO Other

  • CONTINUED EDUCATION for MEDICAL PROVIDERS - look for upcoming classes and seminars for PTs, OTs and other medical providers.

  • Check out a book from the LENDING LIBRARY. Colorado Post-Polio has an extensive library with books about polio survivors,  coping with post-polio syndrome, navigating the insurance system, and navigating life with limited mobility. See the full list here - books are added often.

  • Take part in the TRAVELING CLINIC and MINI-EDUCATIONAL MEETING. Patients receive a written post-polio evaluation, including a muscle test and a list of recommendations to help you preserve or improve your quality of life. The clinic is conducted by Dr. Marny Eulberg, a polio survivor and polio specialist and her team, including a Physical Therapist. Contact Mitzi Tolman at mtolman@eastersealscolorado.org to request a clinic near you.
