The Week In Pictures

Throughout Neuropathy Awareness Week (May 13 - 17) and the month of May, neuropathy events—coordinated by our community advocates—are taking place across the country! These photos represent the efforts of individuals—patients, caregivers, and health care professionals—who are making a difference and moving the fight against neuropathy forward.

“Never underestimate the power of a small group of committed
people to change
the world. In fact, it is the
only thing that ever has.”
- Margaret Mead
