I Am Not Just Parkinson's

If you or someone close to you has recently been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD), you are likely experiencing many emotions and have many questions. Remember that you are not alone. As many as one million people in the U.S. and an estimated 10 million worldwide live with PD. By understanding PD and its symptoms, you can manage the disease and create a fulfilling life. In this workshop, neurologist Dr. Anya Turetsky provides insight on Parkinson’s symptoms, general treatment methods and family coping mechanisms. Includes a caregiver presentation, exercise treatment options including boxing, Dance for PD, LSVT-BIG, and Choral for Parkinson’s, which can improve voice, articulation and confidence.
