The Davis Phinney Foundation is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to help people living with Parkinson’s to live well today. While it is critical to find a cure, we feel strongly that people living with Parkinson’s need information, inspiration and tools that motivate them to take action to improve their quality of life. We also believe that people living with Parkinson's benefit greatly from a wide network of wellness professionals, including Speech Therapists, which is why we are reaching out to you today. One of our premier programs, The Victory Summit® event, is coming to Oklahoma City on Friday, December 8th at the Reed Conference Center. This national educational event is a moving day of information and inspiration for people with Parkinson’s, their loved ones and the greater Oklahoma community. The day will cover topics such as quality of life, exercise, nutrition and strategies for care partners. It’s an upbeat, fast-paced event of community and connection, filled with laughter and conversation. Join us for this day of education and empowerment that may help you to work more thoughtfully and effectively with people with Parkinson's as well as develop a deeper appreciation for the phrase “living well.” For more information and to register, visit www.davisphinneyfoundation.org/events/victory-summit-oklahoma-city/.
