Twitchy Women

Twitchy Women is a social networking group for women living in the Los Angeles area who have Parkinson’s Disease. We are not a traditional support group, We get together to learn something about Parkinson’s Disease, try something new, and meet other women with Parkinson’s. Past meetings have included Boxing for PD, Dance for PD, Yoga, Creative arts, and speakers on various topics of interest to the group.

Introducing Sunday Mornings with Twitchy Women

We are living through very interesting times with the Coronavirus totally disrupting our lives. How are you coping with this? Are you finding that you are feeling isolated? What can you do?

Twitchy Women will be hosting a series of webinars on Zoom for Women with Parkinson’s Disease every other Sunday morning at 10 am Pacific Time. To maintain privacy for this group, we ask that care-partners and family members not attend unless an event states that registration is open to all. If you have any questions, please contact twitchywoman18@gmail.com.
