The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation National Paralysis Resource Center (PRC) is pleased to announce it will be hosting “Women and Aging with Paralysis,” a free webinar featuring a panel discussion among four women living with paralysis, on May 13, 2021. Linda Norah-Davis, Patty Kunze, Carol Evans, and Helena Sparling will be leading this crucial discussion of women and aging. This webinar is a part of the Paralysis Resource Center’s Women’s Health Series which focuses on the health and well-being of women living with paralysis.

Paralysis impacts the aging process for women in many ways. Women with paralysis experience a myriad of changes to both their physical and mental health as they age and often do so earlier in life. Finding resources and support to address these challenges can be difficult. “Women and Aging with Paralysis” will provide a much-needed exploration of this topic to help women better understand what to expect as they age and realize that they are not the only ones going through these changes.

Panelists will share their personal experiences and offer their insights, perspectives, and advice to women facing similar challenges. Strategies for addressing the challenges of the aging process will be provided to empower women to maintain their health and quality of life.

The webinar will be held from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM Eastern Time. Registration to attend the free presentation is now open.
