Parkinson Foundation’s Living Well Conference Set for November 4

Parkinson Foundation Western Pennsylvania invites you to their 4th annual Living Well Conference on Saturday, November 4th, from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.  Whether you have been recently diagnosed or have been living with Parkinson Disease for years, the Living Well Conference will provide important information and resources to help you manage PD and live your best life.  Held at the Doubletree in Greentree at 500 Mansfield Road, the conference will feature dynamic speakers, a helpful resource area, and the most up-to-date information on dealing with this disease.

Keynote speaker John Baumann will present “Positively Un-Shake-Able: What You Can Do to Succeed in Living the Best Life Possible.”  John successfully practiced law for 16 years when, in 2002, at 41 years old, he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.  He is now an inspirational speaker focusing on diet, exercise, being positive, inner strength, staying mentally active, uncovering your purpose and having faith.

Karl & Angela Robb will also present on Uncovering the Power of Your Body, Mind, and Spirit.  Karl is an author diagnosed with PD for over 30 years who writes about health, hope, and new ways to look at your life in books including A Soft Voice in a Noisy World and Dealing and Healing with Parkinson’s Disease and Other Health Conditions, which was written with his wife Angela, a Reiki Master and White House Champion of Change. Dr. Amber Van Laar of the University of Pittsburgh & Dr. Aryn Gittis of Carnegie Mellon University will speak on Current Research on Parkinson Disease including exciting developments such as gene therapy and optogenics.  Dr. Al Condeluci, CEO of Community Living and Support Services and internationally renowned speaker, will share The Importance of Social Capital.
