Parkinson's Connection Orange County

A Special Event for Those Newly Diagnosed with Parkinson's

A Parkinson's diagnosis can be overwhelming but you are not alone and there are things you can do to fight back and live well with Parkinson's. Learning the basics and getting connected to resources as soon as possible after diagnosis can make all the difference in living well with your diagnosis.  We are partnering with Rogue PT & Wellness to bring you information from professionals and from people living with PD.  Sign up and learn how exercise, healthy eating, medications, music, and dance can all help you live better today.
