The Polio Society is a national, non-profit, voluntary organization that was established in 1984. The society was created to provide educational resources and support group services to people who had polio and are now experiencing the late effects of polio. Activities of the organization include the maintenance of a national membership database of polio survivors and healthcare professionals; sponsorship of major national UPDATE conferences about post-polio issues; and the publication of "OPTIONS," a quarterly newsletter that contains information on current medical research, available resources, support activities, and first-hand accounts from the polio community. In addition, the society provides state-of-the-art medical and psychosocial information about the late effects of polio, including audio and videotapes of conference presentations, current scientific and lay articles, and polio-related publications. The organization also promotes public awareness of the late effects of polio through poster campaigns, local and national newspapers, radio, and network television.
