2013 Neuropathy Awareness Week In Review!

We kicked off national Neuropathy Awareness Week (May 13-17) with a press release stressing the importance of raising awareness of peripheral neuropathy which impacts over 20,000,000 (or 1 in 15) adults and children in the U.S.—6 million of whom also struggle with neuropathic pain. During the middle of the Week, the Association partnered with the Hereditary Neuropathy Foundation to issue a joint press release highlighting the growing obstacles neuropathy patients face as a result of the reimbursement cuts to primary diagnostic tests—EMGs and NCSs—that went into effect at the beginning of 2013.

All through the Week and throughout the month of May, advocates in the community have been coordinating activities to step up efforts to increase public awareness for this debilitating neurological disease. The Association also launched several online campaigns that included a book giveaway and a petition--among others—to bring the community together.
