Who We Are

The Post-Polio Resource Group of Southeastern Wisconsin (PPRG) was formed in 1985 by a group of polio survivors who were experiencing new symptoms of pain, weakness, fatigue, and breathing problems. The purpose of the group is to provide information and support to polio survivors and their families and to educate the medical community and the general public about post-polio syndrome (PPS).

Please see the FAQ page for some Frequently Asked Questions about Post-Polio Syndrome - along with our answers, of course. You can also check out how to join the PPRG and read our newsletters and articles by our members and friends.
