Description

It's a Busy World Out There: How can I tolerate distractions without losing my balance?

Some people with Parkinson's Disease (PD) have a greater likelihood of being influenced by distractions, due to their specific type of PD. Rehabilitation science on dual tasking is advancing to help therapists better test, identify, and improve these tendencies. Come to learn about distraction (dual task) rehabilitation so that your balance and daily mobility are not compromised, when you become distracted.
