Pandemic, the Sequel

"This brings us to what we people with Parkinson’s can do that nobody else can. We can share the wisdom we have gained in our own struggles with Parkinson's.

And we can model healthy Parkinson's coping strategies, that can keep us going for years." Read more from Peter Dunlap-Shohl here!
