Living with Parkinson's: Tips / Strategies / Life Hacks

Join us for this state-wide education symposium featuring:

Soania Mathur, MD
Parkinson’s advocate, author, educator

Dr. Mathur is a retired family practice physician. Diagnosed with Parkinson’s at age 27, she retired from medical practice 12 years after the diagnosis. Today she is an unstoppable advocate for the Parkinson’s community.  She is a volunteer with a number of national Parkinson’s organizations as well as the author of: “My Grandpa’s Shaky Hands” and “Shaky Hands - A Kid’s Guide to Parkinson’s Disease. Dr. Mathur’s presentation will focus on the tips she’s discovered, developed, and highly recommends to other individuals living with Parkinson’s.

Kathleen Stoklosa, OTD, MPA, OT/L
Occupational Therapist extraordinaire, Clinical Assistant Professor
Nazareth College of Rochester

Dr. Stocklosa is an expert clinician, educator and researcher.  The knowledge and wisdom she brings to her students is taken from her many years as a practicing OT in the health care arena.  This includes her specialized training as an LSVT clinician for people with Parkinson’s.  Dr. Stocklosa’s presentation will focus on strategies for promoting safety & increasing independence at home, at work, in the community.

Life Hacks – by people with Parkinson’s.  In general, human beings are pretty darn innovative and creative.  Add living with Parkinson’s to that equation we then have superhuman beings who figure out how to do everyday things, despite Parkinson’s.  This portion of the symposium will be a “Show & Tell” of life hacks described by the inventors themselves.
