Parkinson’s Foundation Expert Briefing Lunch and Learns

PDWELL is hosting a Lunch and Learn series in cooperation with Parkinson’s Foundation of the Heartland.   The Expert Briefing series is a series of webinars held 6 times on 6 different topics from September 2019-June 2020 and can be watched from anywhere, however, PDWELL is hosting “watch parties” to let people gather together to eat lunch, watch the webinar and then have a discussion of the content of the webinar.   The first one was on September 17th on the topic “Communication Strategies for Optimal Success”.  Those that attended felt the benefit of learning better strategies to overcome the communication barriers that can be part of PD.   Several people that attended commented that they got so much more out of it than when they have tried to watch at home due to less distractions and the discussion of the group following the webinar.  Lunch is provided by Parkinson’s Foundation of the Heartland.  The next one is scheduled for November 5th 2019 and the topic is Coping with Dementia for Care Partners. Anyone is welcome to attend, registration is required. Please contact Cheri Prince, PT for more details as ChePrince@ensignservices.net.
