The Club Parkinson's Team

Founders

Shana Gatschet, OT, and Connie Urbanek, PTA have a combined 45+ years of experience working with people who have neurological disorders, making them highly qualified to address the needs of those with Parkinson's Disease and their families as they navigate through this progressive disease.

Wichita State University Heskett Center

Being located on campus at WSU uniquely positions us to build relationships with a variety of educational departments to provide applied student learning.  It also allows research development that will create new Parkinson's therapies and develop adaptive technologies to further assist our members who are coping with Parkinson's Disease.
