NOTE DUE TO THE SNOW, THIS MEETING HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FOR THE FOLLOWING WEEK, WEDNESDAY JANUARY 15.
A quick reminder that our meeting is next Wednesday, January 8, with guest speaker Joy Mclaughin, Physical Therapist, who will be talking about balance. Bring your questions! Joy has lots of experience working with people with Parkinson’s.
Parkinson’s School was created to be a resource for patients and their family members. Clinic visits are too few and far between and patients have questions that are going unanswered. Over the past 10 years I’ve treated over 3000 patients with Parkinson’s and these courses represent the themes I find myself repeating. Throughout 2020, a new course will be released on the 14th and 28th of every month. Comments and course discussion will be open for the two weeks after each course to allow time for questions. After comments close, you will continue to have unlimited access to the videos and may watch them as often as you’d like. As far as I know, online education programs to teach patients to better navigate their disease do not exist. I’m hoping this program will stimulate conversation, collaboration, and a sense of empowerment throughout the community.
