This is a really exciting time of the year as we are busy organizing events for 2019. At our cafes we’ll have some new topics to talk about, but we’ll also revisit some of our favorite topics like travel and hobbies. In January our conversation will be about music & memory. If you have suggestions for topics you’d like to discuss at our cafes or to learn more about at an educational event, please drop me a line at Sonia@ParkinsonSocialNetwork.org. We’d love to hear from you!
Here are some events and resources you may want to check out. Don’t forget our Parkinson Social Network cafes – click here to go to our Cafes page for the whens and wheres!
