From the Chair
Although the Winter weather was a bit unusual, at least there wasn’t too much snow.
While in Florida Dianne & I attended the Boca Area Post-Polio Groupʼs December Holiday party, and the November, January and February meetings. In February we heard Professor Mike Kossove speak on several polio topics.
We received positive news from Virpal Kaur, the student from Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine that mailed out the polio survey. She states that the response from our members to her survey was overwhelmingly positive, requiring much more time than originally anticipated to properly analyze and input. However that phase is now complete and she is working on tabulating the results. Hopefully she will be able to share all of this with us before too much longer. This project is an important part of her schooling and is in addition to all the required classes needed to become a doctor.
Although polio has not been eradicated worldwide we are getting closer. According to the World Health Organization globally there were only 37 cases in 2016.
Once again all polio survivors are invited to apply, to Bay Cliff, to attend the “Post-Polio Wellness Retreat” held at Bay Cliff Health Camp, Box 310, Big Bay, MI 48808.
