Annual Conference -- Mini-Medical Conference
Every spring, the WNA holds its Annual Conference to offer informative health care related presentations and update members on the organization's activities. The conferences also feature a light continental breakfast and a buffet lunch.
Check out the highlights from previous years below, and consider ordering DVDs if you were unable to attend.
Neuropathy Action Awareness Day
The Neuropathy Action Foundation, a key partner of the WNA, held the first-ever Neuropathy Action Awareness Day on June 26, 2007 in San Francisco. The WNA sent a busload of members and hosted a booth. See a synopsis and photos.
We have continued to be actively involved in these events. Read about what happened in 2008, and see the photos and highlights from 2009. We have DVDs from 2009 available now, and are working on other years.
Task Force on Peripheral Neuropathy Complete
In 2009, the Neuropathy Action Foundation (NAF) sponsored legislation to establish a task force on peripheral neuropathy designed to improve patient care. The measure, Assembly Concurrent Resolution (ACR) 87, was introduced by Assemblymember Mary Hayashi (D-Hayward). The task force, which included WNA/NCCNA president Bev Anderson and Director Emeritus Sandra Vinson, plus other neuropathy patients, doctors, legislators, insurance representatives, and others, met in March.
