Women and Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease (PD) affects an estimated 10 million men and women worldwide. Women have been shown to have a lower risk of developing PD, and research suggests that there are differences in the way that men and women experience Parkinson’s. Studies indicate that women diagnosed with PD report different symptoms, more often report side effects and changes in their symptoms throughout the day (“fluctuations”) and receive lower quality healthcare than men.

Exercise and Parkinson’s

Exercise is an important part of healthy living for everyone, but for people with Parkinson’s disease (PD), exercise is medicine! Physical activity has been shown to improve many PD symptoms, from balance and mobility issues to depression, constipation and even thinking skills.Exercise is a necessary component to leading a healthy and productive life. Here are a few tips to help you succeed with an exercise regiment. 

Westerville Parkinson's Scavenger Hunt

Enjoy about an hour of creative thinking and problem solving as you work to find clues around Uptown Westerville. Bring your smart phone and the whole family!

The first clue will be at the Westerville Library, 126 S State St, Westerville, OH 43081

Dr. Rosen from the Amaze Academy of Time Travel has been working diligently on new Parkinson’s Research and has come across the fascinating work of Dr. Marvin Max in Westerville from back in the early 1900’s who was testing the limits of Parkinson’s Research for his time. Unfortunately, the writings and formulas aren’t complete.  

What we do know from the writings is that Dr. Max was on to something very powerful at improving the functioning of the central nervous system which would be crucial for Parkinson’s patients today. However, Dr. Max was also a very eccentric and secretive man who loved games and puzzles.  

You’re mission is to follow clues that Dr. Max has left hidden in plain site around Westerville all these years and help our researchers find the last formula needed to continue our research. But be careful, we know of several other secretive agencies from around the world who are also on to the research but want to use it for evil. Be fast and no one else must know what you’re group is up to. Because of this - we’ll be shutting down the operation at 1:00pm so use your time wisely.
