Disability Action Center NW

APRIL IS PARKINSON’S AWARENESS MONTH

Disability Action Center NW is hosting a film event for people with Parkinson’s Disease and their friends and families on April 16th at the Kenworthy Performing Arts Center in Moscow. The film to be shown will be “Capturing Grace”, a poignant reflection on the strength and resilience of the human spirit. A Q & A session with the filmmakers will follow. There will be an interactive dance exercise presented by UofI Dancers Drummers and Dreamers, and local Parkinson’s resources available including assistive technology demonstrations.

“Disability Action Center NW is known to people who have had a disability all their life,” said Outreach Specialist Vicki Leeper, “But we may be less known to people diagnosed with a disability later in life. There are a lot of supports we can help them with.”

The event is co-sponsored by Idaho Assistive Technology Project, CHAS and Gritman Medical Center. Doors open at 6:00 pm with the film presentation starting at 6:30 pm. Free drawing for door prizes.

Another Parkinson’s Workshop is planned for April 26th, 12:45 to 2pm at the Pullman Senior Center. Dance exercise presentation and local resources are planned. Information on assistive technology that can help people with Parkinson’s with daily tasks. “The goal of these presentations is to help form connections in the community for those affected by Parkinson’s Disease,” said coordinator Barbara Merchant. “You are the best expert about your life.”
