Thank you to all who attended the program April 20 at the Manor House!
We had several requests that Dr. Friedman’s presentation be available online for viewing later. For all those interested, you can download a copy of Dr. Friedman’s presentation here. (You must have Microsoft Powerpoint to view it.)
Along with our record-breaking attendance of more than 250, we received some wonderful feedback on the quality of the program, venue, and topics covered. We will certainly take it into consideration as we begin planning for next year’s forum, and invite you to contribute any additional feedback you may have as you reflect upon the day by phone at (513)558-0113 or 1(877)489-1110 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It truly is a never-ending job finding outstanding presenters and making events like the Spring Forum happen. The funding our Parkinson’s Wellness Chapter receives through generous donations is paramount in putting on these programs, but our volunteers who form the Program Committee are absolutely invaluable. If you have the interest and the time, we would welcome your help as a volunteer in any capacity—office work, committee membership, marketing. It’s a way to get involved with a group that is interested in you and to make your voice heard.
Register now for the 2013 Forum on Saturday, April 20, 2013- seats are filling up! This year, we welcome Dr. Friedman, author of Making the Connection Between Brain and Behavior, to deliver our keynote speech on the behavioral and psychological aspects of PD.
