Parkinson Disease Seminars
Introduction to Parkinson Disease: This quarterly seminar is designed for people who have been newly diagnosed with Parkinson Disease. We discuss the basics of medication, therapy, exercise and wellness, and provide information about local resources. In 2022 these seminars will be offered to a limited in-person audience at the OhioHealth Neuroscience Wellness Center with a virtual simulcast.
Parkinson Disease Hot Topics: This semi-annual seminar will update the community regarding “hot topics” in the science of Parkinson Disease, including ongoing efforts to develop evidence-based, disease-modifying therapies. In 2022 these seminars will be offered to a limited in-person audience at the OhioHealth Neuroscience Wellness Center with a virtual simulcast.
OhioHealth has a full range of therapeutic services for neurologically impaired patients, including physical, occupational, speech and other therapies. Whether you are in the hospital, at an outpatient clinic or at home, you have access to the largest team of therapy experts in central Ohio.
Delay the Disease is a nationally-renowned, community-based, Parkinson disease-focused exercise program that helps people to take control of their symptoms. Persons of all fitness levels can attend one-on-one exercise sessions as well as free and fee-based group classes, live and virtual.
Fore Hope is an adaptive golf program that helps people with movement disorders and other neurological conditions to overcome the physical, cognitive and social challenges of their condition. This community-based wellness program provides specialized adaptive equipment that allows participants to play golf with the same advantages as an able-bodied player.
Parkinson Disease Symposium
The OhioHealth Movement Disorders Program has been proud to host a large, annual symposium that has become a hub for the latest information on Parkinson disease treatments and research, group exercise activities, care partner advice, and in-person access to community and resources for support, education, exercise and wellness. We plan to resume this annual event when it is safe to do so with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We have created exercise, education and support programs to help people living with neurological conditions and their caregivers, to build strength, health and community. Together, we will manage your symptoms so that you can live a more active, fulfilling life.
