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

April is an opportunity to come together, talk and share with people who understand the challenges of managing PD as a patient, a family member or a caregiver. So please join us on April 24 because sharing something you know or a coping strategy you use may make a difference in someone else's life.

Please join us Tuesday, April 23 when Patrick Mckeever will provide an instructional Chair Yoga class. For those with MS, yoga can help reduce fatigue, improve cooridination, reduce stress and improve alignment and balance.
