What is Club Parkinson's?
Club Parkinson's is a wellness and education center designed to fill the gap that exists between a diagnosis of Parkinson's Disease and managing the disease for improved quality of life.
Our research-based programs, provided by Parkinson's certified therapists and wellness coaches and students, will improve the overall health and well-being of those with Parkinson's. We strive to include caregivers as a vital part of the program for an all-inclusive care model.
