There are many well-maintained web sites with information about PPS. Listed below are just a few. We want to have links to all local (Georgia and neighboring states) health care facilities that have some kind of Post Polio clinic. Hence the links to Warm Springs, Shepherd Center, Emory and Palmyra. If you have any suggestions for additional local links, please send E-mail to us.

The Lincolnshire Post Polio Network   -- This site is wonderful.  Not only is it packed with links to useful information but they have archives of interesting articles from their own stable of contributors.
