Event description

Description

Join us for this presentation on changes that Parkinson's disease can cause in both speech and swallowing. Alexa Jones is a Speech-Language Pathologist working at Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital. In this program Ms. Jones will address changes common in Parkinson's disease that can impact both communication and swallowing. Participants will learn how to recognize these symptoms, and also, learn about treatments, therapies and practice to help minimize impact on quality of life.

Individuals at all stages of Parkinson's disease progression (and family!) will benefit from this lecture.

Alexa is a Speech-Language Pathologist that earned her Bachelors and Masters degrees from the University of Oregon. She has worked for Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital for almost 2 years and enjoys working in partnership with her colleague Kelly Becker, DPT who specializes in PD treatment. At this point in her career, she focuses most of her therapy on cognitive therapy, swallowing therapy, and working with people with Parkinson's Disease. She enjoys increasing people's quality of life and communication abilities through her therapy and feels that group classes are one of the best ways to practice these skills.

THANK YOU to Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital for helping make this program possible.
