Parkinson’s disease is a slowly progressive

neurological condition that affects more

than a million people in the United States.

Approximately 60,000 people are newly

diagnosed each year. There is currently no cure

for the disease. Exercise is an important part

of healthy living for everyone, however, for

people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) exercise

is not only healthy, but a vital component

to maintaining balance, mobility and daily

living activities, along with a potential

neuroprotective effect.

In recognition of Parkinson’s Awareness

Month, join us to learn about the different

types of exercise for PD, and how exercise and

movement is helping people live better lives.
