Join our online Living Well conversations
Sep. 18, 2020
Arming yourself with the right tools and knowledge to manage your symptoms is key to living well with Parkinson’s.
Our Living Well conversation series is designed to empower people with Parkinson's to live optimally with the condition by increasing knowledge.
A wide range of topics have been covered since this popular online conversation series started August 2020, from telehealth, medication management and emotional well-being to sex, sleep and staying active. And with more to come, there's sure to be a topic of interest to you.
These one hour online sessions are held on selected Wednesdays at midday via Zoom. You will join Parkinson’s Victoria health professionals and members of the community for a topic presentation, with plenty of time for questions and answers.
Anyone with Parkinson's, interested family members and support people are welcome to join.
Coming up soon in our Living Well conversation series:
