Our Next Membership Meeting – Saturday, Jan. 20, 2 – 4 pm

Nutrition and Parkinson’s – Ms. Jo Bidwell, M.Ed.

You are what you eat, or so they say. But how are nutrition and Parkinson’s linked? More importantly, can nutrition impact Parkinson’s in a positive way? Come to our January meeting to learn the answers from Ms. Jo Bidwell, M.Ed. on Parkinson’s and Nutrition.

She has had extensive involvement with Parkinson’s and the PD community and currently serves as Director for the Southwest Parkinson Society in Lubbock, Texas. She is also on the faculty of South Plains College, where
she teaches nutrition. Ms. Bidwell holds a B.S. in Human Science and a M.Ed. in Health and Physical Education, both from Texas Tech University. She also served as Information and Referral Coordinator for the American Parkinson Disease Association for 17 years, and was Developer and Manager with Covenant Neuro Science Institute for 10 years.

Also, instead of our usual refreshments after the meeting, we would like for you to bring your favorite “secret” chili recipe.  Whoever has the best chili will receive the “Best Chili in Texas” award.  If you don’t want to cook, you can bring a side such as cheese, crackers, cornbread and/or a dessert.  Come have fun on Saturday!

CAPS meetings are always open to everyone with an interest in Parkinson’s, and there is always plenty of free parking.
