Parkinson’s Nebraska to Host Midwest Delay the Disease Training
Parkinson’s Nebraska (www.parkinsonsnebraska.org/delay-the-disease-training) believes providing education is the strongest way to advocate for the Parkinson’s community. That is why they are thrilled to host the Midwest Delay the Disease training on July 18 and 19 at the Ramada by Wyndham Midtown in Grand Island, NE. The deadline to apply for this training is Friday, May 24. Delay the DiseaseTM is an evidenced-based fitness program for people living with Parkinson’s disease. The program is designed to empower participants by optimizing their physical function and helping to delay the progression of symptoms. Parkinson’s Nebraska is proud to offer this training to 40 licensed professionals at no cost (must be licensed PT, OT, PTA, COTA, RN, AT, Exercise Physiologist, ACE, ACSM, NCSA, ISSA to attend). Parkinson’s Nebraska will provide all attendees with the cost of the training, hotel room, $25–$75 mileage stipend, meals during the training, and a dinner presentation. They are in the process of certifying this training for CE hours in the state of Nebraska.
The training is available to professionals from across the Midwest region, but those from rural Nebraska are encouraged to attend. Parkinson’s Nebraska recognizes that communities in Central and Western Nebraska do not have as much access to Parkinson’s specific resources. By making the Delay the Disease training accessible to rural professionals, they plan to increase the number of exercise programs, and quality of life, for people with Parkinson’s in those communities.
