Why is membership important?

Simply put, numbers matter. People in positions of influence--government officials, health care providers, insurance companies--care about the size of a constituency. Saying there are several million people with neuropathy in California is important, but more important is being able to demonstrate that we have a growing and committed membershp who know about the disease and care about how decisions affect their lives. We become powerful as we unite together. Your PCNA membership matters greatly.

The PCNA is a California non-profit, tax-exempt corporation affiliated with The Neuropathy Association. Our mission is to provide hope through caring, support, research, education, information, and empowerment to people with peripheral neuropathy and those who care about them. We help inform and connect with the health care community and support research in peripheral neuropathy treatment.
