Getting diagnosed with Parkinson’s is a singular moment in your life. Everyone’s experience with that moment of diagnosis is different. Some may find it shocking or frightening, while others may feel relieved to finally have an answer to their symptoms. Support is available to assist with navigating uncertainties following diagnosis.
We invite you to join our monthly IPMDC Recently Diagnosed Boot Camp, designed specifically for individuals who have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s within the last 5 years. These free, virtual sessions each month provide guidance and support to help you make informed choices regarding your health, knowledge, exercise routines, and lifestyle.
