Women with Parkinson's

If you are a Pittsburgh Woman who happens to have Parkinson's Disease - you are not alone! Come join a group of women as we meet for lunch and share our stories. Let's encourage, support and inspire each other to stay positive, active and engaged.

We are starting with lunch, but we can get together for other activities, too. Perhaps you’re looking for someone to join you for a walk in the park or a walk around the mall, for a Rock Steady boxing session, or to go swimming, biking, or practice yoga. Or maybe you would just like to speak with another woman who understands. You might meet her here!

Upcoming Meetings

November: Saturday, November 4 from 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM. Please join us at the Living Well Conference, sponsored by Parkinson Foundation Western PA. Our group will sponsor an information table for Women with PD. The women with PD group will also gather together for a women's only breakout session in order to talk casually about the group with others. There will also be some “get up or stay-in-your-seat” and move activities to energize the group!
