A Journey Through Parkinson's Disease

Growing older is the greatest risk factor for acquiring Parkinson's disease and many people live with symptoms for several years before being diagnosed. Often people in early stages of Parkinson's disease assume their symptoms are part of normal aging or are due to other health problems they may have, such as arthritis. 

To learn about Parkinson's disease, its effects, and possible treatments, register now to participate in A Journey Through Parkinson's Disease, an educational series from Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. Iowa State's Department of Kinesiology and Human Sciences Extension and Outreach are sponsoring the series virtually throughout 2024. Click Here for Event Flyer 

The series consists of three, 1-hour sessions. Participants can join by computer or phone and technical assistance is available. Through support from a community grant from the Parkinson's Foundation, there is no cost to attend the series.
