AUDIO & VIDEO
The Western Neuropathy Association is pleased to offer the following DVDs to help people learn more about neuropathy and related subjects. We will continue to develop more selections, so check back periodically to see what is new.
Each of our support groups receives a copy of our DVDs. They may elect to show one at a meeting, or to have it available for members to borrow. Check with your local support group for their procedures.
If you would like your own copy of a DVD you may order online using the buttons below, or, if you prefer, you may complete our order form and pay by check.
Our video program has been made possible through the generous gifts of WNA member Bill Heisinger, which have enabled us to purchase our video camera, DVD duplicator and printer, and related equipment. We are also grateful to our speakers, who have permitted us to record and distribute their presentations, and to the Neuropathy Action Foundation, which has let us record at the Neuropathy Action Awareness Day events.
