Resources–forum for newly diagnosed and a free resource book


Hello everyone,

At our last meeting Donna recommended a book Every Victory Counts: Essential Information and Inspiration for a Lifetime of Wellness with Parkinson’s Disease.  It is put out by the Davis Phinney Foundation for Parkinson’s.  The book is free but the foundation will request a donation.

Go to their website www. davisphinneyfoundation.org for information about the book, their webinar, DVD and e-newsletter.


The following information about a Newly Diagnosed Educational Forum offered by Johns Hopkins Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Center which was published in their newsletter comes to us courtesy of Angela Robb.

The Johns Hopkins Parkinson’s Disease Community Outreach and Education Center is offering a Newly Diagnosed Educational Forum on Friday, June 26. This forum is for those who have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in the past one to two years and their loved ones. The program will offer valuable information and resources about Parkinson’s disease, with the goal to assist families in playing an active role in the management of Parkinson’s disease.

Please look below to learn about upcoming events, view our current newsletter, or visit our website. Our center is dedicated to research, patient care, education, and community outreach. Please contact us if you have any questions or ideas to address community needs.
