Hi Bill,

Welcome to!  I am please as peaches to see a circle being drawn between respiratory programs such as the excellent one at Kaiser Permanente which I was involved in creating, and the Salk Institute's support of polio survivors through our Breathing & Sleep symposiums.  As Lois probably explained, she has attended the B&S events, which are all posted here on the web for anyone to view at the VIDEOS tab above.

If your aren't already connected to a PPS group in your area, please let me know and it would be my pleasure to personally link you to one of the local leaders.  There are many PPS groups in close proximity to Temecula.  You can also visit the California Group at the groups tab above and look over the list to see which might be closest.

Once again, welcome to PolioToday from all the San Diego Polio Survivors!
