Veterans and Parkinson’s: Mobility and Driving Safety

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

 | 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. CT

For many Veterans living with Parkinson's disease, one of the most common needs and challenges is maintaining their independence. We will hear from Parkinson's disease experts, including a movement disorder specialist, physical therapist, and occupational therapist, discussing common PD-related mobility challenges and the importance of recognizing and managing fall risk and driving safety.  We will also explore mobility aids and home modifications, including eligibility and how to access these services through the VA Healthcare System no matter where you live.  

This program is open to people with Parkinson's, their family, friends, and the community. There is no charge to attend, but registration is required.
