The Parkinson’s Foundation is going virtual for its fifth annual educational summit on Feb. 25 in Fresno.

Titled the “Better Lives Together: Fresno Parkinson’s Summit,” it will cover holistic health, research into environmental exposures and exercise options.

The Greater Fresno Parkinson’s Support Group is co-hosting the event via Zoom from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

“The Parkinson’s Foundation is bringing experts and advocates together to share strategies for living better lives with Parkinson’s,” said Sarah Osborne, Parkinson’s Foundation community program manager in California. “Community education is a vital part of the foundation’s mission to help people live better today until there is a tomorrow without the disease.”
