September PD report for Anchorage and environs
Here is the rundown for Anchorage-area PD news as I know it. The Telehealth broadcast will be Monday, Sept 10 in room 2401 at 1:00 p.m. in the Providence oncology wing on Piper St. Go to
the second floor walk down the lonnnnnnnng hall that stretches South from the cafe and look for room 2401 pretty much at the end of the hall on your right. The speaker will be a neurologist named Dr. Britt and his topic will be "Pre-clinical and early clinical manifestations of Parkinson's Disease. "
Our regular meeting will be held on the 15th of September. Our guests will be Betsy Arbelovsky and her assistance dog Sasha. Betsy will talk about the amazing ways Sasha helps her cope with PD.
And if all that weren't enough, if you want, if you DEMAND more PD activities, look no further than The Alaska Dance Theater (550 E 33rd Ave in Anchorage.) This where the fabulous Carolyn Lassiter will kick off the "Dance for Parkinson's training. That begins Sept. 4, from 1:00 - 2:00 in the afternoon, Carolyn has taken it upon herself to go all the way to New York City to train with the Mark Morris Dance company in their much-praised dance program for people with Parkinson's Disease.
