That's A Fact: A strong social support network can help those with PD address the long-term, emotional impact of a PD diagnosis. Support from a variety of formal and informal sources can have real benefits, including improvements in mood, ability to cope and reduced levels of stress. Next meeting Wednesday, Jan. 25.
A valuable resource for people with Parkinson's, their families and caregivers

We start the New Year with an opportunity to catch up and come together with people who understand the challenges of managing PD as a patient, a family member or a caregiver. So be sure to join us on Wednesday, Jan. 25; sharing something you know or a coping strategy you use may make a difference in someone else's life.

In February, we will hear from Riverside neurologist Dr. Butler about differences in symptoms and treatments.
