Welcome
  
May is Neuropathy Awareness Month!
Our goal this May is to increase awareness about the importance of early diagnosis and treatment of neuropathy. In recognition of the importance of increased awareness, Mayor Steve Adler has proclaimed May 2016 to be Neuropathy Awareness Month for Austin. You may read the proclamation here

Now, we need your help in achieving our goal.
Tell 5 people about neuropathy and our organization's programs, and direct them to our website for additional information.
 
 
 Our Story
Neuropathy Alliance of Texas, an Austin-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization, dedicates itself to improving the quality of life and overall well-being of those affected by neuropathy. Because neuropathy seldom affects only the patient, we count caregivers, family and friends among our constituents. Regardless of a person’s relationship to the disease, we strive to improve the quality of life for all.

Our monthly support group meetings in three locations serve as the foundation for all our programs. They provide moral support and education. Attendees interact with and learn from each other, and expert speakers bring information across a broad range of disciplines. In addition to support group meetings, we offer
  • online meeting videos for those who cannot attend in person,
  • a lending library of relevant literature available to borrow at group meetings,,
  • newcomer information packets,
  • a website filled with resources, and
  • tai chi classes tailored for people with neuropathy.
Watch the video above to learn about our history and how we help real people live better with neuropathy.
