NPF National Parkinson Foundation - June 16, 2010
Dear Friend of NPF,
With the official start of summer only a week away, we would like to help get you motivated to dedicate the summer months to living well with Parkinsonís disease. Whether you attend an exercise class, participate in a walkathon, or attend an educational conference, Parkinson.org has all the resources you need to take charge of your health this summer! If itís too hot to go outside, check out our online video library and listen to the top neurologists answer your most frequently asked questions about PD.
Connect with the Parkinsonís community at one of our upcoming NPF-sponsored events:
1) The ďOut of the Park for ParkinsonísĒ campaign is in full swing this summer. Support Gordon Beckham of the Chicago White Sox in his partnership with the National Parkinson Foundation to hit Parkinsonís out of the park! During the month of June, every donation to the campaign will be entered into a drawing to win 4 premium tickets to a Chicago White Sox game, a parking pass and an autographed photo from Gordon. Visit www.outofthepark.org to pledge your support today and you may be going to a game in July!
2) Register for the October 2010 Young Onset Parkinson Conference (Southeastern) in Atlanta, Georgia. This weekend-long event includes sessions on stem cells and gene therapies, neuropsychological aspects of the disease, sex and intimacy, as well as practical tips for daily living. This conference is brought to you by the National Parkinson Foundation, the American Parkinson Disease Association and the Northwest Georgia Parkinson Disease Association.
