Serving up Knowledge is a new program the COA is offering on a monthly basis that will focus on caregivers and issues they may face. The program begins at Noon.

April is National Parkinson’s Disease Awareness month. Every 6 minutes, someone will be diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease (PD) in the U.S. It is a progressive disorder that affects the nervous system and the parts of the body controlled by the nerves. We are pleased to welcome Karen Freshwater, a certified Physician’s Assistant from the Bronson Neuroscience Center in Kalamazoo.

If you know of someone who has Parkinson’s Disease, or you know of someone who is caring for someone with Parkinson’s, please let them know about this informative program.

Please join us for this presentation – lunch is included. If you are a COA member the suggested donation for lunch is $2.50. If you are not a member and would like to eat lunch, the cost is $7.50. You must RSVP at least 24 hours in advance by calling 279-8083.
