2 events from our friends at the Fairfax City PD support group . . .

PFNCA Executive Director Jared Cohen
to speak to Fairfax City PD support group

Our next meeting will be Monday, January 13th from 7-9 pm.
The speaker will be Jared Cohen, Executive Director of the Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area (PFNCA). In order to let everyone have a chance to ask a question, the group who came to the November meeting voted to submit questions ahead of Mr. Cohen’s visit.

Submit your question by emailing Angela at angela.robb@cox.net for submission to Mr. Cohen. Mr. Cohen will also take questions at the meeting. Thanks to those who have already emailed their questions!

We welcome all to attend (see directions below). If you haven’t been to a meeting in a while, please come and reconnect with friends.  If you are new to our group, please come and meet fellow support group members. Water will be provided.  Those who wish can bring snacks to share.  We will also have our library of PD resource materials available at the meeting.

Weather Policy – If Fairfax County schools are closed, our meeting is cancelled.  If weather conditions are not good, please stay home.  We will do our best to alert everyone to the meeting being cancelled, but please use your best judgment.

Take care,
Angela & Karl
