I copy news articles pertaining to research, news and information for Parkinson's disease, Dementia, the Brain, Depression and Parkinson's with Dystonia. I also post about Fundraising for Parkinson's disease and events. I try to be up-to-date as possible. I have Parkinson's

The event will also include a panel of Spectrum Health neurologists will discuss the condition and what they have learned while treating it. Spectrum says about 1 million Americans have Parkinson’s.
Gibson, now 59, is a Pontiac native and was a two-sport star at Michigan State University. As a pro, he won world championships with the Detroit Tigers and Los Angeles Dodgers. He was also the manager of the Arizona Diamondbacks. His son, Cam Gibson, currently plays for the West Michigan Whitecaps.
Kirk Gibson was diagnosed with Parkinson’s three years ago and is being treated by Spectrum’s Dr. Ashok Sriram.
