You can’t control the wind, but you can adjust your sails.
I just saw this post on Parkinson’s Women Support about a site called Parkinson’s Patients Support Groups. Although it is based in the Bay Area, there is a lot of good information about Parkinson’s organizations, the latest news on PD and clinical trials. A similar sight with resources in the LA area is The NeuroCommunity Foundation which has support groups and other services in the Valley and points north.
In addition, I was informed this morning that I have been featured in a testimonial on the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation website. One of the goals of the Women & Parkinson’s Initiative conference that I attended is that participants will reach out to other women with Parkinson’s. I will be planning an event in the spring for Women with PD living in in Los Angeles along with Jennifer Parkinson, who also attended the conference. If you are a woman with Parkinson’s or know a woman with PD living in Los Angeles or the Valley, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to be put on our email list. You will not want to miss this exciting event. More info to come.
Finally, a note from Parkinson’s Action Network. Take the FDA Survey on Parkinson’s by Oct. 30
There’s still time to join more than 2,400 people with Parkinson’s and their caregivers who have taken the community-wide survey on Parkinson’s disease. Learn more about the survey here.
