PARKINSON & MOVEMENT DISORDER ALLIANCE

National Parkinson event comes to Las Cruces June 4

Posted

The national Parkinson & Movement Disorder Alliance (PMD) will be in Las Cruces 9:30-11 a.m. Friday, June 4, at First Presbyterian Church, 200 E. Boutz Road, to present its outdoor “Live It Up” workshop and social gathering.

There is no charge to attend to event, which is capped at 30 people. State public health orders will be followed, including mask wearing and social distancing. Register at PMDAlliance.org.

The featured speaker will be movement disorder specialist Dr. Neal Hermanowicz.

“The most important thing for us is that we are constantly meeting people where they are at,” said PMD CEO Sarah Jones. “We are hearing that some of our community is ready to be together again, in person, and we want to be there as our folks transition into this new normal. We know that people with social connection live 20 percent longer. We are seeing that the lack of social connection has a real

impact on quality of life. We want people to at least be able to have eye contact in person, not just through Zoom,” Jones said.

PMD is dedicated to “providing opportunities for people to learn, live more fully and spark meaningful meaningful connections around them.”
