In the United States, it has been estimated that more than 1 million people have Parkinson's Disease (PD). In Colorado the estimate is 15,000 and in Larimer County there are at least 900 suffering from this chronic disease.

The Parkinson's Support Group in Larimer County (PSGLC) has more than 100 members including PD patients, their caregivers, family and friends, health professionals and other interested parties.



Support Group Meeting: September 7,2016
Fort Collins Senior Center
10:30 - 12:30

Neuroplasticity

Neuroplasticity will be the topic of the Parkinson’s Support Group in Larimer County meeting on Wednesday, September 7. The speakers will be Howard Nornes, Ph.D., Emeritus Professor, Department of Molecular, Cellular and Integrative Neuroscience at Colorado State University and Christian Hageseth, M.D., retired psychiatrist.

Neuroplasticity refers to the ability of the brain to regenerate, adapt or heal itself. The discovery that this ability can continue throughout life with proper training gives hope to persons with Parkinson’s disease.

As time permits, informal group discussions will take  place after the formal presentations for people with Parkinson's and caregivers.
