Fairfax Parkinson Friends
Join us to meet other people with Parkinson’s and their families as we learn from local experts and encourage each other, and leave with a feeling of hope and purpose that you can get the most out of life, maintain your independence, and continue to enjoy all that life has to offer.
This group meets at Insight - Fairfax on the first Wednesday. All support groups are free and open to the public. Please contact Sonia for more information.
*In addition, Inova Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders Center (IPMDC) offers a Dance for PD class in partnership with Lucy Bowen McCauley and the Center for Ballet Arts next door! Join them on Wednesdays from 11:00 am to 12:00 noon before this meeting! Learn more about Dance for PD.
