prior diagnosis of poliomyelitis.
Although polio has been eradicated
in the U.S., it is estimated that
between 12 and 20 million
individuals are living in the
world with a prior diagnosis of
poliomyelitis. Every year the MUSC
Division of Physical Therapy
Program in the College of Health
Professions hosts a Post-Polio
Clinic as part of the educational
curriculum. This year, 18
volunteers participated in the
clinic and support group meeting.
Individuals interested in
