Boxing, cycling, facilitated movement and yoga will be featured activities at the 2019 Parkinson’s EXPO, the day-long event on Saturday, April 13 that brings top Parkinson’s specialists from around the country to the Tampa Bay area. The event is free and open to the public.
“Exercise is the only thing that can slow the progress of Parkinson’s,” said Robyn Faucy-Washington, the CEO of Neuro Challenge. “Our featured activities are designed for people with Parkinson’s; we have several breaks for attendees to try them out.”
Leading the array of strategies for living well with Parkinson’s are the national Parkinson’s specialists who will be speaking to the latest medical findings and projections on the disease.
