SBRN is excited to announce our new virtual peer-support group for men with disabilities. The “Virtual Men’s Chat” is a monthly tele-support group for men of all ages with spina bifida and other disabilities to discuss relevant topics such as social issues, relationships, medical services and anything else that’s on their minds.
The group will meet online the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7pm ET through Zoom. Participants can call in using a phone or join us from a laptop, desktop or tablet. There is no cost to participate (though you must register to receive the Zoom link.) Auto-captioning will be available.
We are happy to welcome Steven Nguyen as the facilitator of the Men’s Chat. Steven, 32, is a disability advocate and certified peer mentor. Living with spina bifida, Steven understands the daily struggles and barriers that people with disabilities face and works to promote inclusion and bring about positive changes in his community. A resident of New Orleans, LA, he serves/has served on many state councils and boards, most notably, the Louisiana Developmental Disabilities Council, The Louisiana Statewide Independent Living Council and Spina Bifida of Louisiana. Steven’s educational background is in computer information technology, and his hobbies include playing adaptive sports, traveling and spending time with family and friends. He always appreciates connecting with others, offering support and finding shared or new interests.
Share your story, gather valuable resources and make new friends while enjoying the convenience of connecting from home using your phone or computer.
