Parkinson Disease Support Group will meet at 1:30 p.m., Monday, May 19 at Wesley Park Centre Garden Room. The speaker will present ” Be Creative, Think Creative!” 

When diagnosed with a progressive disease it is helpful to give the diagnosis an image. When that image is determined, using expressive arts creative problem solving is expanded and relieves stress. Spiritual director and art facilitator, Sam Erwin, diagnosed in 1999 with Parkinson’s disease will facilitate the program.

Meetings are open to all who have a diagnosis of or an interest in Parkinson Disease. For more information phone Eloise at (641) 791-1018.
