Davis Phinney Victory Summit
The Davis Phinney Foundation for Parkinson’s is holding one of their Victory Summits in Philadelphia on Saturday, August 24. I haven’t been to one yet, so I’m really looking forward to it. The focus of this organization is to help people with Parkinson’s to live well and they describe their Victory Summits as “a moving day of information and inspiration” and “an upbeat, fast-paced event of community and connection, filled with laughter and conversation”. I’m all for that! For more details, click here. Will we see you there? ~Sonia
