Wellness and PD: Exploring Exercise, Music and Art to Cope with PD

*This is a virtual program, taking place live, using the online Zoom platform. Instructions on joining the webinar are provided after registering.*

Exercise is beneficial for everyone, but it’s especially important for those affected by Parkinson’s disease. Studies have shown that exercise can delay the decline in quality of life for those with PD. In addition to exercise, creative therapies such as art and music will also be explored for their benefits.
