Peripheral neuropathy is a 24/7/365 battle for more than 20 million people in the United States. And, until we find better treatments and cures for neuropathy and neuropathic pain, every week is Neuropathy Awareness Week, every day is Neuropathy Awareness Day. Everyone who has or cares about someone with neuropathy has got to be counted as someone who cares about the issues facing the neuropathy community.
At the recommendation of The Neuropathy Association—since 2005—the third week of May has been designated as Neuropathy Awareness Week on the federal government's official Calendar of National Health Observances. This year's observance will take place from May 14 to 18. Visit neuropathy.org in the coming weeks for information on Neuropathy Awareness Week events, media opportunities, and other ways to get involved in the fight against neuropathy!
