Educational forum to connect those newly diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease

The Parkinson’s Foundation, in partnership with the Light of Day Foundation, will hold a free educational forum for people newly diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD) and their families on April 13 at the Sheraton Edison Hotel, 125 Raritan Center Parkway, Edison.

“Parkinson’s in the Light of Day” will provide the opportunity for people diagnosed with PD in the last three years to connect with others in the Parkinson’s community, hear expert speakers share tips and tools on how to best manage PD, and learn about other available information and resources. Attendees can also participate in Parkinson’s-specific activities and exercise and play a key role in shaping a national initiative by sharing their insights.

Live music will be performed by Joe D’Urso from the band Stone Caravan and Joe Gruchecky from the band The Houserockers—both musicians are Light of Day Foundation board members.

There is no charge to attend the event, but seating is limited. Complimentary breakfast and lunch will be provided. Registration and breakfast begin at 9 a.m. and the program runs from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
