Parkinson's group finds strength through sharing

Door County is following a trend of increased cases of Parkinson's Disease being diagnosed around the Great Lakes region.  Parkinson's patients and their families are turning to support groups to work with health care professionals and others to learn how to face the disease.  Sturgeon Bay United Methodist Church has had an active Parkinson's support group since 2004.  Parish Nurse Carol Moellenberndt says the support group helps members realize they're not dealing with the disease alone. It also provides up-to-date information on the course Parkinson's Disease takes and improvements in treatment options.


The Sturgeon Bay United Methodist Church Parkinson's support group will be holding a program featuring Nurse Practitioner Dacy Reimer with Lakeside Neurocare.  She specializes in the treatment and care of Parkinson's Disease.  The free program starts at 12:30 PM on October 3rd at the church on Michigan Street in Sturgeon Bay.
