Position: Mentor for Newly Diagnosed People with Parkinson's
Categories: For Newly Diagnosed
Location: Northern Nevada

Receiving a diagnosis of Parkinson’s can be scary and isolating. Doctors are not necessarily in tune with just how devastating a diagnosis of Parkinson’s can be to an individual. As a mentor and someone with Parkinson’s, I hope to alleviate some of the fears, uncertainty and anxiety that often accompanies a diagnosed by giving them someone to talk to. I would encourage them to share their experiences and concerns and I could provide them with information on a number of local resources.
