College student Julie McGovern was issued a handicapped parking pass years ago due to a chronic illness that leaves her unable to stand or walk for long periods of time. But because she doesn’t require crutches or a wheelchair, she often feels uncomfortable using it.

How coordinated care gives patients the freedom to stay at home
BY David Pelcyger July 27, 2015 at 10:26 AM EDT
Editor’s note: As America’s population ages, more families will be faced with rising health care needs. As we reported in November, nearly 79 percent of adults who need long-term care live at home or in community settings, not in an institution. And in January, Medicare started paying primary care doctors a monthly fee to better coordinate care for the most vulnerable seniors — those with multiple chronic illnesses — even if they don’t have a face-to-face exam. The goal is to help patients stay healthier between doctor visits, and avoid pricey hospitals and nursing homes.

Walk-N-Roll for Spina Bifida is a family friendly, non-competitive walk event and educational resource fair that raises awareness about Spina Bifida and celebrates the accomplishments of the approximately 177,000 Americans living with its challenges. Proceeds are used to support local community programs and services for all affected by Spina Bifida.
The name “Walk-N-Roll” was selected because it embodies a sense of inclusiveness and invokes the sense of empowerment which the Spina Bifida Community embraces in all that it does. A belief in a better tomorrow is our vision and the steps taken in this walk represent steps on a path to realizing that dream.
