Meetings are free of cost. To find the Anchorage meeting, proceed with all deliberate speed to  Providence Hospital 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 Parkinson's TeleHealth Program broadcasts live, interactive educational talks to a network of rural communities in the Northwest. On the SECOND Monday of each month, a guest speaker presents a topic eared toward the interests of Parkinson's families. The information is designed to help participants to improve their knowledge of Parkinson's disease and in turn their quality of life.

The regular meeting of the Anchorage Parkinson's Disease Support Group will be held on Saturday, the 19th of July, at 3:30. It's time for our annual picnic potluck. To make this the most festive occasion possible, we will hold the meeting at my house, 9601 Elmore Road. To find the house go to the intersection of Elmore and Abbott Roads, just below Service High School. We are South of Abbott about a quarter mile on Elmore. Our driveway is marked by a green mailbox on your left, halfway up a small hill. Our house has a green metal roof and cedar siding The event is a potluck, so bring something that people will enjoy sharing. We'll see you then!
