April 3 In-Person Meeting Announcement: Just-Us Share Time

Our next meeting on April 3 will be an in-person meeting in Reston and dedicated to Just-Us Share Time. Let’s talk about those self-conscious and embarrassing moments that come with Parkinson’s. We’ve all experienced them. How have you handled them? With humor? With resignation? With that fright, flight, freeze feeling of panic? With grace and dignity? Do you wish you’d handled something differently than you did? Let’s share our awkward, uncomfortable stories in the spirit of support, strength, and garnering wisdom.

  • DATE: Wednesday April 3
  • TIME: 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM
  • PLACE: Reston 
  • TOPIC: Just-Us Share Time

For everyone’s safety, we ask that you not attend the meeting if you are feeling ill or have been exposed to anyone who is ill. By agreement with our sponsoring organization, we do not publicly post our meeting place.

UPCOMING MEETINGS: Our May 1 meeting will be via Zoom. Amelia Faraco-Hadlock, Deputy Legislative Director to Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton, will speak to us from 1:00-1:30 pm about the National Plan to End Parkinson’s, which passed the House of Representatives on December 14, 2023.
