San Diego Polio Survivors

San Diego Polio Survivors is an unoffical, all volunteer, non-commerical, organization that meets to share information about polio and post polio syndrome (PPS) for those who live in the San Diego County area and for anyone else regardless of where they live.

New Website for San Diego Polio Survivors

Thanks to the generosity of the Salk Institute this website will now become a supplemental web site for the San Diego Polio Survivors.

There may be as many as 600,000 people in the United States who had polio as a child or young adult. Most of these polio survivors know they had polio earlier in life. There are, however, many thousands of people who never knew they had contracted polio as a child but now face the effects of post polio syndrome. Some medical experts suggest that as many as 1,000,000 more people many have had this form of non-paralytic polio.By building an effective web site, we hope to get unoffical, but still accurate, information out to a larger audience of people interested in polio and post polio syndrome (PPS).
