Living Well with Parkinson’s: Coos Bay

Living with Parkinson’s? Learn more about the importance of Exercise, Nutrition, Socialization, Self-care, and Education for optimal long-term management of your PD.

Please join Parkinson’s Resources of Oregon (PRO) on Wednesday, November 8th, for an afternoon discussion focused on lifestyle strategies to live your best life – both as a person living with Parkinson’s and as a care partner. Between visits to the doctor, the daily choices you make can help you better manage your symptoms.

We will discuss the evidence behind recommendations about exercise, nutrition, provide strategies to manage healthcare information, the importance of socialization and mental health and discuss available resources. Denise Boyd is a physical therapist with Southwest Physical Therapy. She will be co-presenting.

Whether you are new to PD or you have been living with it for many years, there will be something of interest to everyone -along with opportunities to ask questions.

Presented by: Libby Kennard, Program Lead for Parkinson’s Resources of Oregon and Denise Boyd, PT, with Southwest Physical Therapy.
