Parkinson's disease can give you a new perspective on life. Share it.

Riverside Neurologist Dr. Jonathan Butler will join us for our February meeting to talk about to about Differences in Symptoms and Treatments. Parkinson's symptoms are different for different patients. Many patients experience some symptoms and not others. Dr. Butler will talk about the "cardinal" symptoms, "non‑motor" symptoms and treatment options.

This meeting is also a great opportunity to spend some quality time with those who are also dealing with PD. Don't miss it!

MS Support

Please join us on Tuesday, Feb. 27 when National MS Society Development Manager Clare Lorio will join us to kick off this year's Walk MS: Newport News. The Walk MS: Newport News event is scheduled for April 7 at Newport News Park. Clare will talk about tips for fundraising, participant center guides and how to register your team and much more.
