Presented in collaboration with Georgetown Area Parkinson's Support Group, PMD Alliance and Sunovion!
GAPS has been selected and is honored to participate/host the
"GOOD Morning PMD Alliance/Sunovion Pilot - Central US Region"
This workshop will be to learn more about Parkinson’s “OFF Times”! Our support group, GAPS is one of 10 leading support groups throughout the country to help build a toolkit for talking about OFF time. PMD is seeking a broad mix of group sizes, make up and locations to ensure we capture as many voices as possible. We truly hope you will join us for this interactive 90-minute workshop in which we will discuss OFF in a new way, learn from a movement disorder physician and prepare to put your learnings into action.
Your participation in this pilot program will ensure the Toolkit is developed using your words and experiences. The truth is you are the only one who knows what your experience of OFF is, so hearing you describe it will help the Toolkit be more effective and applicable.
Sign up to participate in the Good Morning Pilot at our GAPS monthly online meeting:
