Information Sharing Group

 Push to Walk has created a group where clients’ family members can get together to talk and share different types of issues that might be helpful to each other. The group will be led monthly on varying days by an experienced RN/Social Worker named Joyce Arthur. If you are interested in being a part of this group, please email Stephanie Lajam at
