Multicultural Outreach Program
The Multicultural Outreach Program reaches out to diverse communities across the United States to raise awareness of paralysis and PRC resources available to the community including in-language resources, building community partnerships, and using the Reeve Foundation ambassadors.
Join our community.
Native American Outreach
In 2008 the Paralysis Resource Center (PRC) and the Division on Disability and Health Policy at the University of New Mexico's Center for Development and Disability began working with Navajoland Nurses United for Research Service and Education (NNurse) to conduct a series of six information sharing meetings on the Navajo Nation to learn about quality of life for people living with paralysis on the Nation and how the PRC could better serve people with paralysis on the Nation.
Live Without Limits
Our Live Without Limits meetings are free informational meetings for non profit, community based organizations and healthcare professionals to learn about the Paralysis Resource Center and the services which we offer to the community.
Join the Multicultural Outreach group on our Paralysis Community!
According to a 2009 national population survey sponsored by the Reeve Foundation over 5.5 million people in the United States are living with paralysis or approximately 1 in 50 people.
Multicultural Outreach Ambassadors
The Paralysis Resource Center's multicultural outreach ambassadors are members of the community who spread awareness about day to day quality of life issues related to paralysis and the Paralysis Resource Center.
