But WAIT, There's more...

Hey one and all. It's a jam-packed July. We had a great talk from Dr. Elmer, courtesy of the Washington branch of the APDA. Our next meeting will be the picnic, which Lory has graciously volunteered to host at her home on the lake in Wasilla. The event will be the 19th, which is next Saturday, from 1:00 to 5:00. Lory asks us to bring salads, desserts and side dishes. Directions still coming. Lory?... how do we get there?

In other news Dr. Alec Glass, a motion disorders specialist is going to visit with our group. He is preparing talks for us on gene therapy, and also on depression. Dr. Glass is very interested in trying to establish a consulting practice here in Alaska. The hope is that while here, he will be able to make contact with local Neuros, and work out an arrangement with them to travel here regularly and provide expert care. I met with Dr. Glass while I was Outside getting my head examined, and was favorably impressed. Details on when and where we will meet with him still to come, but it will likely be Thursday evening, July 24 downtown. By the way, while he is here, he will be giving talks to doctors at both hospitals on PD issues.

Hey Joe, You're welcome to drop by! But I gather it's a long trip.
