Polio Australia invites anyone who had polio as a child, whether here or overseas, to a free information session on November 5 at Spinal Life Australia - Cairns North.

Family, carers and anyone else interested is also invited to attend.

We will discuss the Late Effects of Polio, which can include increasing muscle weakness, debilitating fatigue, intolerance to cold, chronic pain and problems with sleep and breathing.

We’ll also talk about how to work well with your health professionals, and self-management strategies to help you stay well.

There will be time for Q&A, and opportunities to make connections with other polio survivors in your area.
