Tudor Heights Assisted Living & Memory Care, 7218 Park Heights Ave, Baltimore, will host a Panel Discussion and Q&A on “Understanding, Living With and Treating Parkinson’s Disease” on Wednesday, July 31st, from 7 to 8:30 pm. A light buffet will be served. Admission is free and open to the public with RSVP.

Heading the panel will be physicians from the Parkinson’s & Movement Disorders Center of Maryland. These specialists will discuss treaments, therapies and lifestyle changes related to Parkinson’s.

Attendant to the panel discussion will be the formation of a “Parkinson’s Support Group” to provide emotional, educational and social support for participants. The group will meet monthly at Tudor Heights and will be open to all family members, friends or care partners involved with a loved one dealing with Parkinson’s disease.

Starting July 28th and extending through September 1, sections of the “Parkinson’s Global Quilt,” will be on display at Tudor Heights. The quilt was created by more than 600 people affected by Parkinson’s to help raise awareness of the nearly one million Americans and the 7 to 10 million people worldwide living with Parkinson’s and the continued urgency to find a cure.

RSVP to Sherri Zaslow at 1-410-318-8000.
