Monthly Meeting 10/28 and Event of Interest 10/23

Our next PD support group meeting will be Saturday Oct 28 from 10 am – noon at Sun Rise Senior Living at 3750 Joseph Siewick Drive. ( behind Fair Oaks Hospital) 3rd floor room left of the elevator.
People with PD, their spouse, family member or care takers are welcome to attend meetings.

We are pleased to welcome Karl and Angela Robb as the speakers at our Oct. support group meeting. Karl has lived with Parkinson’s for over 30 years. He and his wife Angela are devoted advocates on Parkinson’s issues and have much to share with us. Karl is the author of the blog and book, “A Soft Voice in a Noisy World,” which recently made Healthline.com’s short list of books “That Shine A Light on Parkinson’s.” Karl co-authored a second book with Angela, “Dealing and Healing with Parkinson’s and Other Chronic Conditions,” a workbook that explores living well with a chronic health condition. Karl and Angela inspire us to live our best lives with Parkinson’s. Come and join us for an informative and fun program with two of the nicest and most knowledgable people in our PD community ..
They will bring copies of their books and have a book signing after the meeting.

Here is an invitation for the entire PD support group.  Note that the
dinner is sponsored by a pharmaceutical company and is free for the person with PD and their spouse or care partner. Those who plan to attend will need to RSVP directly (see email below) to help plan limited seating.

This program, part of a new Speaker Program for people with PD, is titled “Your Path to Greater Personal Empowerment” will be addressing the changes that occur as PD progresses and the common challenges that patients face. Patients and their partners will be empowered with knowledge and tools to rise up and face these challenges. Please note this is a non-branded program and no pharmacological products are promoted. This is an educational disease state program. The program is ideally suited for those who have been living with PD for over 5 years.

The event will be held at The BRIO TUSCAN GRILLE at 7854 Tysons Corner Center in Mc Lean, VA on Monday, October 23 at 4:00 pm.
Joining me as a speaker that evening is Fahd Amjad, MD, a Movement Disorders Specialist from Georgetown University.
