Newly Diagnosed informational forum

No one wants to hear that they have a progressive disease for which there is no cure, and that news is unsettling for nearly everyone who receives it. You are not alone. With diligent work, you CAN manage this disease, instead of it managing you. Newly diagnosed patients and family members are invited to learn from other newly diagnosed patients how to cope with living with Parkinson’s.

Please contact Sharon Jung for details of times and locations.
