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

September 30, (Saturday) Step Forward Walk. Please register for our Team (Pittsburgh Women with Parkinson’s): http://www.stepforwardpittsburgh.org. We are planning a tailgate for our group! This will take the place of our September lunch. The day will be jam-packed with entertaining games, huge prizes, upbeat music, cooling refreshments, and fun for the whole family. Remember, you do not have to walk—you may sit, relax, and enjoy the morning with friends! Wear you new t-shirt, gather family and friends, and join our team.

October 19—Thursday, Bravo in Robinson beginning at Noon. NOTE: We have changed the date from our regular schedule (second Friday of each month) so that we may accommodate our featured speaker. We are happy to welcome Susan Merenstein, RPh and Owner of Murray Avenue Apothecary. Please see Susan’s information: https://maapgh.com/about-susan-merenstein.html She is excited to speak with us about CBD Medicinal Hemp Oil and its use for neurological disorders as well as answer any of our questions related or unrelated to PD.

November 4—Saturday—Living Well Conference, sponsored by the Parkinson Foundation Western PA. Our group will sponsor an information table for Women with PD. The women with PD group will gather together for lunch in a seperate room 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! Please register for the conference here: https://www.pfwpa.org/news-and-events/pfwpa-events/living-well-conference.html
