If you’ve been living with Parkinson’s for a while, chances are good that you’ve either heard about how beneficial boxing is for people with Parkinson’s, or you’ve attended many boxing classes yourself. But how familiar are you with the latest and greatest research about boxing and Parkinson’s? In this webinar, our panel members will share specifics about the research they’ve conducted and will describe the effects of Parkinson’s severity and duration of boxing training on changes in balance, mobility, and quality of life for people living with mild or moderate to severe Parkinson’s. You will also have the chance to ask the panel members, John Dean, Josefa Domingos, and Sara Rigarre, your questions. To register for the webinar, click here.

Health Disparities and Parkinson’s: The LGBTQAI+ Community 
Tuesday, June 29, 2021
1 pm Mountain Daylight Time (12 pm PDT, 2 pm CDT, 3 pm EDT, 7 pm GMT)
Living well with Parkinson’s takes support – from our families, communities, healthcare professionals, workplaces, government, and more. When those systems are compromised due to systemic oppression, bias, or lack of inclusion, health outcomes are compromised. In this webinar, Wissam Deeb, MD, and Nicole Rosendale, MD, help us understand how issues faced by the LGBTQ+ community show up in Parkinson’s care and how we can increase awareness and create more inclusive spaces to address inequities.
