Sessions are free, but donations are greatly appreciated.

CNA’s goals for this GivingTuesday are to:

  1. Hear 30 people’s stories at Open Mic 
  2. Raise awareness for the CNA & have 30 people sign up for our newsletter (see right panel)
  3. Raise $2,000 in donations to build an on-line course to teach self-management skills to chronic neuropathy pain sufferers

On-Line Meeting Etiquette:

  1. No abuse will be tolerated, anyone being abusive or intolerant will be removed from the meeting.
  2. Headsets work best for some people, they reduce the need to project (raise your voice) and may block some background noise.
  3. It is good etiquette to put yourself on mute and to un-mute yourself when you wish to comment or ask a question.  Be aware, if you have disruptive background noise the meeting administrator may put you on mute to aid everyone’s ability to hear.

The CNA is currently offering on-line connections/discussion meetings. Anyone with neuropathy or anyone who provides care or lives with someone suffering from neuropathy is welcome to attend.  These are the first Tuesday of each month.

If you wish to participate register in advance for this set of meetings:
Click Here to register for CNA Connections 

These meetings are limited to 25 participants.  It is based on a first “meeting accepted” / first permitted basis. This means you must register for the meeting if you wish to attend.

Please note: we are using Zoom to conduct these meetings.  If you need help setting up your computer to use Zoom you may also contact Events@CalgaryNeuropathy.com for a one-on-one session. Note: this support is on a best effort basis and Linda cannot guarantee success.

Meeting format:

We are primarily a neuropathy education group and so our CNA connection meetings focus on a specific self-management topic each meeting.  The topic is often not decided until soon before the meeting.  As standard procedure the administrator will read an article from the CNA website to start the discussion.

Note: These meetings will NOT be recorded.

On-Line Meeting Etiquette:

  1. It is good etiquette to put yourself on mute and to un-mute yourself when you wish to comment or ask a question.  Be aware, if you have disruptive background noise the meeting administrator may put you on mute to aid everyone’s ability to hear.
  2. If you are typing, ensure you place your self on mute.
  3. You may use the Chat box to ask questions or to communicate directly with the administrator.
  4. Headsets work best for some people, they reduce the need to project (raise your voice) and may block some background noise.
  5. It is best to save snacks for after the meeting, but feel free to have your favorite bev in hand.
  6. No abuse will be tolerated, anyone being abusive or intolerant will be removed from the meeting.

Your Support of Neuropathy Education is Appreciated:

The CNA exists solely because of donations and fundraising. We do still have association expenses and so, if you are able, any support you can provide is greatly appreciated.   Please use the e-transfer option or click the donate button on our CNA website home page if you can support us in our education and support efforts.
