SHORT HILLS, N.J., May 10, 2022

The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation presents the launch of two new international information resource website pages, offered through the National Paralysis Resource Center (NPRC). The international pages are featured in two new languages: French and Chinese.

The new international pages provide free, accurate, and culturally sensitive resources for people living with mobility impairments or paralysis. The new offerings include resources on NPRC services and programs, videos with subtitles, educational topics (such as research, rehabilitation, travel, etc.), and easy access to the team of Information Specialists. Additionally, translated publications such as the Paralysis Resource Guide, wallet cards and patient educational booklets to provide in-depth downloadable and printable information for individuals living with paralysis, their caregivers, and health professionals in various languages.

“The Reeve Foundation prides itself on reaching people across the globe, expanding and providing quality paralysis-related resources and tools in other languages,” says Patricia Correa, Associate Manager, Information Services and Translation. “Creating resources in multiple languages ensures that we can provide access to trustworthy information and services and improve the quality of life for our community.”

The resource pages provide an accessible and vital source on all topics related to paralysis, ranging from causes of paralysis, secondary conditions, quality of life, and caregiving. The Reeve Foundation will continue to expand its website with more languages in the coming year.
