Parkinson's Report for Anchorage and Environs, May 2016

Hello friends, Wondering what we're going to do this month to remind ourselves that we have a rare and debilitating disease? That's the spirit! You can show your contempt for this sorry, so-called pathetic excuse for a malady by attending the Telehealth seminar on Monday, May 9th, at 1:00. The topic this time is the World Parkinson's Conference, to be held in Portland, Oregon this September.  They will address registration, accommodations, sessions and travel. To find the Anchorage telehealth interactive broadcast, 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 monthly support group meeting will be held May 21st, at 3:30 in the luxurious fifth floor lounge of the Anchorage Pioneer Home. It will probably be an "open mic" session for you to air your PD questions and concerns. If nobody has any questions or concerns about the disease we will take up the topic of "If we're not worried about this. then why do we have a support group anyway?"
​Thank you for your attention, now  please return to what you were doing before I so rudely interrupted,
With ceremony, ruffles and flourishes, this is your President-Pro-Tem-For-Life, Generalissimo Pedro Del Dunlap-Shohl, signing off.
