NPF Heartland is excited about a new program and resource we can offer to our community. What You and Your Family Should Know About Parkinson’s Disease: Parkinson’s 101 is for patients, family, friends, caregivers and anyone else learning how to navigate life with Parkinson’s Disease.
The program will give you the foundation to best care for yourself and your family. In addition, it will provide an opportunity to connect with others facing the same challenges and begin-or continue- creating a community and support system.
Look for Parkinson's 101 program presentations in the coming year! If you are interested in more information or are a support group that would like to use this as an educational tool at one of your meetings, please contact us at 913.341.8828.
Past webinars are available in the archives approximately one week after the scheduled event.
