Description

The Neuropathy Association is a national, non-profit organization established to help people with disorders that affect the peripheral nervous system (peripheral neuropathy). The peripheral nervous system consists of all the motor and sensory nerves that connect the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body (i.e., the nerves outside the central nervous system). The organization is dedicated to providing patient support and education to individuals affected by peripheral neuropathy; advocating for patients' interests; and promoting research into the causes and cure of peripheral neuropathy. The objectives of the association are to provide support through programs of education and the sharing of information and experiences related to peripheral neuropathy; enhance physician awareness through programs of education to help identify, evaluate, and treat peripheral neuropathy; increase public awareness of the nature and extent of peripheral neuropathy and the need for early intervention and research; encourage pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to develop new therapies and devices for treatment of peripheral neuropathy; and encourage government support for research into the causes and treatments of peripheral neuropathy and the need for special accommodations and facilities for people with peripheral neuropathy. The organization publishes several brochures and a periodic newsletter entitled "Neuropathy News."
