Introducing: Parkinson Wellness Project

Well, hello, it’s been a while!

Between having a sweet baby boy, practicing parenthood and figuring out how to contribute to the scientific community again, it’s been a wonderful couple years!

I wanted to introduce you to what I’ve been involved in (with many wonderful selfless and passionate people) for the past couple years…

Parkinson Wellness Project!

Parkinson Wellness Project (PWP) improves lives by supporting people with Parkinson’s and those around them.

PWP empowers, improves function and increases quality of life for those affected by Parkinson’s through fun, safe and effective multi-disciplinary programs – with rigorous, evidence-based exercise at its core. 

We are opening a Parkinson’s exercise and wellness centre here in Victoria and growing our community. With a generous donation from an anonymous source, we have been busy renovating (well… permits, permits, permits!) and preparing our programming for our new 2,400sqft space; we can’t wait for you to join us in 2018!

To read more about what we’ve been up to, you can see us in recent media:
