Podcast: Treating Parkinson's 'Off' Episodes

Get Moving: Exercising for a Healthy Brain (Webinar Audio)

Have you ever wondered what the best exercise is for your brain? Tune in to a rich discussion with our experts on simple ways everyone — with and without Parkinson’s disease (PD) — can incorporate more movement into your day and support your brain health. 

As our panel discussed, the “e word” might be scary for many, but it’s important to find an exercise that works for you. That’s even more critical if you live with Parkinson’s — our panel agrees that daily movement is one of the most valuable tools that we have to live well with PD.  

Listen to our latest podcast to hear all about approachable ways to add more movement into your day-to-day, Parkinson’s-friendly exercises to try right now and the science behind the benefits of working up a sweat.
