Parkinson’s Support Group
The March and April meeting for this event has been canceled

Parkinson's disease is a progressive, nervous system disorder that develops gradually over time and can limit one’s movement, which can become socially isolating for people suffering from it.

The group meets from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. the third Tuesday of every month at the Prevea Health Center located at 1109 West Clairemont Avenue. The meetings are facilitated by a certified neuroscience registered nurse and a physical therapist assistant.

Registration is not needed and new members are always welcome. For more information, call 715-717-4505.
