The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation Launches International Information Resource Pages

SHORT HILLS, N.J., June 8, 2021

The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation presents the launch of their new international information resource website pages, offered through the National Paralysis Resource Center (PRC). The international pages are featured in five new languages: Spanish, Vietnamese, Hindi, Tagalog, and Portuguese.

The new international pages provides free, accurate, and culturally sensitive resources for people living with a mobility impairment or paralysis. The new offerings include resource on PRC services and programs, videos with subtitles, educational topics (such as research, rehabilitation, travel, etc.), and easy access to our Information Specialist team. 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.

“From the beginning, we saw the need to expand and provide quality paralysis-related information in other languages,” said Patricia Correa, Associate Manager, Information Services and Translation. “Paralysis does not limit itself to any border or language. We have the responsibility to bring the most up-to-date and accurate materials to people who otherwise would not be able to access it.”

The resource pages provide an accessible and vital resource on all topics related to paralysis, ranging from causes of paralysis, secondary conditions, quality of life, and caregiving topics. In addition, there are two new features on the Spanish page: The Peer and Family Support Program and Reeve Connect Community. Both programs have dedicated Spanish pages and fully bilingual team members to connect to the paralysis community. The Reeve Foundation will continue to expand their website with more languages in the coming year.
