Shoes, Coffee, Advocacy, and WPC 2016

First thing:

I am NOT a paid sponsor nor have I been compensated for these comments:

I guess you could call this a “footnote”–okay, bad joke, but I think some of you with foot problems and balance issues, might just find benefit in trying these shoes. They are the cost of a good running shoe and they have a return policy if the shoes don’t work out: My only mention of these shoes here is because I have found them to be so comfortable–period. My wife and I recently discovered these

Comfort and Stability

Comfort and Stability

running shoes made to accommodate for more space for a wider foot. We each got a pair–she loves that her heel doesn’t hurt and I love the comfort and flexibility that it allows my toes. I can say that these are the most comfortable shoes that I own!  I just think this product should be known. I haven’t sold out and I won’t sell out. I will only share products that I use, find great benefit, and feel that they may have a positive impact on your life. The shoes came from altrarunning.com.

Second Thing:

I want  to commend my friend, Sonia Gow on organizing her first Parkinson’s Cafe! Her event was a smashing success as over 50 people in the Fairfax, VA,  area attended. The event was like a free-flowing support group and a great opportunity to share and catch up with friends. We are so lucky to have Sonia’s passion and vision for helping the Parkinson’s community so close by. Check out her site at  www.parkinsoncafenetwork.org. to learn more.

Third Thing:

My friend Jean Burns is bringing awareness to some very important concerns involving clinical trial participant and hospital policies. After you have read this, share it with friends and family. This is an eye-opener. Here is the article in US News World Report.

Fourth Thing:

The 2016 World Parkinson Congress registration deadline for discount is nearing (July 5), so register soon. Don’t forget about visiting the author Book Nook and Wellness Way while you are in Portland, Oregon. This event only happens every 3 years and as an international event in North America, this is a great opportunity to learn from doctors, researchers, practitioners, and patients across the globe. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet and learn  from neurological experts from all over the world. Go to WPC2016.org to learn more.
