The Parkinson's Foundation will sponsor a Parkinson's Symposium in Murfreesboro for the first time ever. We are excited that they have chosen Murfreesboro to expand resources for our city and our surrounding area. We will not have our regular first Friday of the month Support Group Meeting and are asking all of our members to register and participate in this event instead. We encourage everyone in the Parkinson's Community of our local area to come and support this event.

This is a community event open to any family effected by Parkinson's.
