NorCal SCI discovers San Joaquin Valley Rehab SCI support group

We were amazed to find a second SCI support group in the Fresno area operated primarily out of the San Joaquin Valley Rehab hospital located in Fresno.


The group meets on the second Tuesday of every month (next meeting is coming up on Tues., Jan. 9th) from 5-6 p.m.  The meetings are usually held in the Education Room of the hospital (located at 7173 N Sharon Ave, Fresno) though they rotate the location to include outings at restaurants and movies, etc.

Benilde Leal, who has a Master of Physical Therapy, is the group leader.  She can be reached by e-mail at or by phone at (559) 436-3600 ext. 3704.

NorCal SCI co-founder, Nick Struthers, is planning a trip down to Fresno in March to attend their meeting and will report back on his findings.
