June 18th – Jo Bidwell, M.Ed. on Parkinson’s and Nutrition

Nutrition and Parkinson’s Disease – What You Need to Know

You are what you eat, or so they say. But how are nutrition and Parkinson’s linked? More importantly, how can nutrition impact Parkinson’s in a positive way?

Learn the answers to these questions and much more at our June membership meeting, where we will be joined by Ms. Jo Bidwell. Our featured presenter, Ms. Bidwell is uniquely qualified to discuss this topic. She brings an in-depth background in health and nutrition, and has had extensive involvement with Parkinson’s and the PD community.
