About the Event
One of the most common questions people living with Parkinson’s ask is, “What about medical marijuana?” Many are curious - if and how it might work for different symptoms and what the research says. Our guest speaker, Bethany Campbell, is a Nurse and Expert in answering questions about the use of Medical Marijuana.
When a person receives the diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease, he / she might react with feelings of hopelessness. That is understandable. PD is a degenerative disease and there is no cure. However, there is a lot that can be done to live well with Parkinson’s. Our Parkinson’s Support Group was formed to promote awareness and advocacy for people living with Parkinson’s disease and to provide information, answers, and support for them and their caregivers.
Our Parkinson’s Support Group of Panama City started 4/9/17 at Healthsouth. We moved to Brookdale Asst. Living until 10/10/18 when hurricane Michael destroyed Panama City. Our Parkinson’s Support Group moved to the Beach Chamber where we met every month on the 2nd Tuesday until 9/14/21.
On 10/12/21, we will change our location to the Panama City Beach Senior Center on Lyndell Avenue, Panama City Beach, FL for our last Parkinson's Support Group meeting of 2021.
Our meetings are free and open to the public. We have a lending library and materials provided for free at each meeting including Parkinson’s Care Program DVDs available at each meeting.
