Welcome to Our Parkinson's Place


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
diseases as well and thought it would be nice to have a place where
updated news is in one place. That is why I began this blog.
I am not responsible for it's contents, I am just a copier of information searched on the computer. Please understand the copies are just that, copies and at times, I am unable to enlarge the wording or keep it uniformed as I wish. This is for you to read and to always keep an open mind.
Please discuss this with your doctor, should you have any questions, or concerns. Never do anything without talking to your doctor. I do not make any money from this website. I volunteer my time to help all of us to be informed. Please No advertisers, and No Information about Herbal treatments. This is a free site for all.
Thank you.

Parkinson’s experts will share the latest research and tips on living with the disorder at an upcoming forum.
The free event, hosted by the American Parkinson Disease Association, will be 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. July 8 at the DoubleTree by Hilton-Downtown Tulsa.
More than 300 people are expected to attend the event, which is intended to be both inspirational and educational, said Jenny Johnson, executive director of the American Parkinson Disease Association, Oklahoma Chapter.
“Parkinson’s Disease isn’t a death sentence, and those with Parkinson’s can live well given education and support while remaining active,” Johnson said. “We believe education is key in order to live successfully with Parkinson’s disease.”
Topics will include the benefits of movement and exercise and how participating in enjoyable activities can reduce symptoms.
There are an estimated 1.5 million Americans living with Parkinson’s. The disease affects men and women alike and is considerably more frequent among those 60 and older.
here are between 15,000 and 16,000 individuals with the disease across the state, Johnson said.
“Because of the nature of the disease and the impact it has on the individual, it affects the whole family,” Johnson said.
