Within Our Reach: Race at Your Own Pace
Fri, May 5, 2017, 8:00 AM – 3:00 PM EDT
Parkinson's cases are as different as the patients themselves. Whether you're a patient, care partner or medical professional, you know that treatment is highly individualized.
The theme, "Race at Your Own Pace" encourages Parkinson's patients and their loved ones to set their own course that includes a self-efficacy program that can change their lives. Every mile marker can bring positive change. No matter your pace, this symposium will show you how taking or choosing the positive road can strengthen motor and cognitive skills and provide a better quality of life.
The "Race at Your Own Pace" symposium will feature:
Excellent speakers: Keynote and motivational speaker Tim Hague will talk about his experience winning the Canadian Great Race, despite the additional obstacles presented by his Parkinson's disease.
Expanded Movement Health Fair: Spend more time moving and improving- reflexes, dexterity and relaxation.
Exchange of Ideas: Bringing people together through technology, selected seminars will be available after the event via video on our website. Details can be found at www.umm.edu/parkinsons
