That's A Fact: Most people can get relief from their Parkinson’s symptoms with medicines.
Parkinson's disease can give you a new perspective on life. Share it.

Our next meeting is Wednesday, October 24 when we will hear from Tangela Mash, BSN, RN. Tangela and her patient partner will talk about Duopa, an advanced treatment for Parkinson's Disease; the patient partner will discuss their journey with Parkinson's and Duopa.

We will be off for the holidays in November and December then back to kick of the new year on January 23, 2019 with the Two Left Feet Foundation. Rick Tvelia will be discussing ballroom dancing and Parkinson's. Rick and a client with Parkinson's will include a demonstration and share their experience with ballroom dancing. What a great way to start the new year!
