Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is a progressive, degenerative neuromuscular disease. On its own, that description carries a ton of information that people with Parkinson’s (PWP) need to understand and accept.
Learning about PD equips you with the knowledge and awareness that will be instrumental in your life-long journey with this disease.
Expert information is the key to understanding your symptoms, expressing issues with your neurologist, and improving your quality of life as you battle PD.
Because expert knowledge is so empowering, PEP4U offers a weekly PD Education Hour. These free, online Zoom sessions occur bi-weekly on Fridays at 10 AM PT. Everyone is welcome, PWP and caregivers, from southern CA to Maine and beyond.
Past sessions have covered PD-specific concerns ranging from cognitive issues to the benefits of trekking with poles, from a study of anxiety and depression to the wonders of mindful meditation.
These Zoom sessions include resources (printed, webinars, discussions) from premier organizations, including the Davis Phinney Parkinson’s Foundation, Parkinson’s Disease Foundation, MJ Fox Foundation, and other professionals.
Join us next Friday at 10:00 AM PT. Use this Zoom link for all our live education hours. Listen, learn, contribute, and enjoy meeting new PWP. At PEP4U, we’re all in this together.
P.S. We archive all past sessions on the PEP4U website.
