102 Irving Street NW
Washington, DC 20010
Established in 1986, the NRH The Post-Polio Program is the largest in the Washington metropolitan area and is one of only a few such programs across the country. Its goal is to help individuals become more effective in managing polio-related health problems through comprehensive evaluation, treatment, follow-up, and education. The Program is directed by Lauro Halstead, M.D., who is one of the nation’s leading authorities on the diagnosis and management of polio-related health problems. The Program is staffed by an interdisciplinary team of health professionals with special expertise in and understanding of the unique physical, psychosocial, and emotional needs of persons who are experiencing the late effects of polio. The NRH Post-Polio Program provides services to persons who had polio many years ago and now feel they are experiencing new health problems that may be related to their polio. People who are not experiencing new health problems but are interested in learning how to avoid or minimize late complications are also seen.
