Recently Diagnosed Seminar 2019 program announced

Jan. 31, 2019

A diagnosis of Parkinson’s is life-changing, so it’s only normal to feel overwhelmed by what this means. For many people, questions often come up after leaving the doctor’s office.

That is why Parkinson’s Victoria’s Recently Diagnosed Seminars are so important – and valued by the many people who have attended them. After more than 15 years, they are a staple of our community education program.

RDS sessions provide an intimate environment in which individuals and their families can better understand diagnosis and connect with others facing a similar situation.

You will be provided with the knowledge and tools to build a foundation for improved confidence, self-management and care, including symptom management strategies, plus information on the many support services available.

As well as providing a unique opportunity to learn more about living with Parkinson’s from experts, your questions will be answered and you will meet others facing comparable changes and challenges

Parkinson’s Victoria will run eight RDS sessions in Melbourne and regional Victoria throughout 2019. These sessions are designed for people who have been diagnosed within the past 5 years and family members are welcome to attend:
