Swallowing Changes

Changes in speaking, chewing and swallowing are common in Parkinson’s disease (PD) and can interfere with important parts of life, such as the ability to eat well. But they don’t always have obvious signs, and many people with PD are not aware of these difficulties, or don’t know how to describe them.

Moving Day Omaha

Moving Day is more than just a walk. It raises awareness and funds to improve the lives of people living with Parkinson’s disease and advance toward a cure.  This inspiring event brings together people of all ages and abilities for family-friendly fun and activities.  Moving Day highlights movement and exercise as symbols of hope and progress because of their essential role in treating Parkinson’s disease.
