Parkinson's Activities for the month of September in the Anchorage Area

With Winter on its way we need distraction from dwelling on the coming cold and dark! What better distraction could there be than Parkinson's Disease? The diversion kicks off Monday, September 14 at 1:00 pm. with a telehealth interactive broadcast. The subject will be "The benefits of Tai Chi for everyone" taught by Kaiya Treffry - Instructor for ACT 2. To find the Alaska 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.
As for our regular support group meeting, the magic eight ball says it's on for Saturday the 19th of September, but details beyond that are hazy. The Northwest chapter of the American Parkinson's Disease Association had been talking about staging a small conference for us on that day, but I haven't heard from them for awhile. Details as they emerge from the inky depths of the eight ball. To be continued...

This just in from the eight ball, it turns out that I weill have to miss this meeting, as I will be up in Denali Park, driving the road with a lottery winner. I encourage people to meet anyway and discuss their PD concerns with one another.
