August Parkinson's Reminders for the Anchorage Area

With the regularity of the Moon circling the earth, the Sun rising and setting, the very stars in their steady courses, the third Saturday of the month is rolling our way. And that means it's time for our hardy band of northern Parkinspeople to meet! I will be handing off the talking stick to Jane Mara who has agreed to facilitate the meeting. So show up for something new this weekend at 3:30 on the fifth-floor Tundra Lounge of the Anchorage Pioneer home.

And another thing , we will also have a deluxe bonus August meeting with very special guest Jennifer Riedel, Associate Director for advancement at the MJ Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research, Wednesday, August 21, 6:00 pm at the Pioneer home, up in the Tundra Lounge. Jennifer will be sharing the latest research updates from the Fox foundation and this promises to be a real barn-burner of a meeting. Don't miss it!

Furthermore... The September meeting will not take place in its usual form, Instead it will be pre-empted  and augmented by the Parkinson's Live Well, Alaska program, a full day of presentations from local, regional and national PD savants, experts and wisepeople.  It will EDUCATE, INSPIRE and EMPOWER you in your daily coping with PD.  It all happens Saturday, September 14, 10:30 am to 3:30 pm at the Anchorage Senior Center, 1300 East 19th Ave in Anchorage Pre-registration required. You may pre-register here  Or give them a phone call (206) 695-2905.  I will have brochures for the event at our upcoming meeting.
