Event location: Visiting Nurse Association, 1500 Meadow Lake Pkwy, 3rd floor, Kansas City, MO 64114
Join us for a national webinar, followed by Dr. Kelsey Sewell from KUMC Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorder Center, discussing common mind and mood challenges with PD.
We strongly encourage people with Parkinson’s, family members, friends, caregivers and other interested individuals to attend one of the many support groups offered. Support groups provide an opportunity for people to meet regularly for mutual support and to exchange coping skills with one another in matters relating to Parkinson’s disease.
The Wellness Program
The Wellness Program occurs every Tuesday and Thursday from 10:30 am to 1:00 pm year round in our office. Attendees participate in one hour of seated exercise, followed by lunch and games. Caregivers are encouraged to use this time for respite.
10:30am - 11:30am: Seated Exercise
11:30am - Noon: Lunch ($5 donation suggested)
Noon - 1:00pm: Social Activities/Games
The Wellness Program is FREE.

Starting a fundraiser allows you to take the lead in planning your own event. It is a great way to raise funds and awareness for Parkinson’s disease in your local community.
