The Rotary Club of Stevens Point, Wis., has started a campaign to spread awareness of post-polio syndrome, a little-known condition that can affect people who have had polio. "(Post-polio syndrome) is not a re-occurrence of the (polio) virus, just an abnormal response to normal aging. As people age they do lose some strength, but those who have post-polio syndrome lose it much faster," physical therapist Stephanie Olson said. The Rotary Club created an awareness video and will have their efforts featured in the Rotarian.
