Parkinson’s Support Group to Meet Aug. 8

The Parkinson’s Support Group will meet on Monday, Aug. 8, at 10 a.m. in Jefferson Community Health Center’s Small Conference Room.

The program will be “Managing Vision Changes in Parkinson’s Disease” by Shirley Blanchard Ph.D., ABDA, OTR/L, FAOTA, and Karen B. Wilson, OD. This program is a tape of the program presented at the 4th annual Advances in Care for Parkinson’s Disease Conference held in October 2015 by the American Parkinson’s Disease Association and the University of Nebraska Medical Center.

Easiest access will be by parking in the H Street parking and entering through the JCHC Main Entrance. Follow the lobby signage to “Hospital.” The meeting rooms will be to the left. The Small Conference Room is the second door.

The Parkinson’s Support Group generally meets on the second Monday of each month. Please note a change in meeting week for the July meeting.

The group is designed to provide an opportunity for area residents to share their experiences with Parkinson’s disease. There is no cost for participants.
