The Spina Bifida Association of Georgia receives inquires on a daily basis from people with spina bifida, their families, and professionals working with them who are seeking information on resources available to meet identified needs. To address these inquiries, SBAG maintains a database of information on spina bifida, its associated conditions and prevention of this birth defect as wells as information on the resources available to assist people with spina bifida and their families.
SBAG also addresses the need for information via a quarterly newsletter, The Challenger, which is published by the Association. The newsletter serves as an educational and resource tool for families and professionals. It is distributed to individuals with spina bifida, professionals, community agencies, hospitals, and other Spina Bifida Association chapters nationwide.
To support the parents of children with spina bifida, the Association takes a parent-to-parent approach. SBAG connects parents of newborn or older children with spina bifida who are having a variety of difficulties with a more experienced parent who can provide support on a one-to-one basis.
