This is one example of the type of work out that can help people with PD keep strong /fit and slow down the progression of the disease. I’m raising money to create a short film to help newly diagnosed people with Parkinson’s Disease (PD)understand the importance of creating and maintaining an exercise regimen. I am collaborating with the Neurorehabilitation Research Lab at Columbia Teacher’s College to illustrate how exercise can slow down the progression of neuroprogressive diseases such as PD. My hope is to have this film available on websites devoted to serving people with Parkinson’s as a learning tool to help them feel empowered by taking a proactive approach to coping with the disease. The film will be produced by (close friends of mine) Nancy Stern and Lisa Lax of Lookalike Productions as well as The Big House film production company.
