Partners in Parkinson’s DC event this Sunday 10/12

This Sunday marks the first Partners in Parkinson’s event in Washington DC. The event is a full day of education on living with Parkinson’s and learning about resources in the DC/VA/MD/DE/WV area. I encourage you to come and be a part of this free event. Wednesday 10/8 at 12 pm is the deadline for registering online. You can register as a walk up on the day of the event.

As part of the Partners in Parkinson’s event, there will be a Resource fair that includes representatives from universities that have Parkinson’s programs, local and regional support and exercise groups, vendors who provide services to our community and many more community resources.  It’s a great opportunity to meet with the staffs of these organizations and network.

You also have the opportunity to hear from those living with Parkinson’s, their carepartners, and allied health professionals who work with the PD community.

Register online and find out more at: https://www.partnersinparkinsons.org/attend-an-event.  There are also upcoming Partners in Parkinson’s events in Philadelphia, Chicago, Denver and Los Angeles before the end of 2014.

P.S. Read my September blog posting discussing other upcoming PD Educational Events this fall.
