Wellness Wednesdays: Mental Wellness Series
Living with a chronic and progressive disease like Parkinson’s disease (PD) is no small feat. While PD can feel overwhelming at times, finding ways to connect with meaning and purpose, stay on track with your goals and maintain a strong support network can improve quality of life. Building a healthy, balanced routine can also promote well-being.
Join us to learn from people living with Parkinson’s and PD specialists about ways to actively influence your mental narrative and improve your overall health during this candid, virtual conversation.
