MEETING
Picture of Red Parkinson Tulip
Topic: OPEN FORUM - "If you don't care, who will care?" 

SPECIAL NOTE: Due to popular request by our members, our new meeting times are we start at 3:00 pm and end at 4:30 pm. With time available "after" our meetings for socialization among guests and support group members!

Because this year is an important political year, it is even more important for all of us in the Parkinson's community to understand how our voices can be heard in Washington and make an important difference for the Parkinson's community.  
 

During this Open Forum, we will not discuss, express our political opinions, or indicate support of one political party versus another.  This meeting is not about political parties - it is not about red versus blue. 
 We will discuss why we should become Parkinson advocates; how we can become active advocates; and how we can influence Washington's support of dollars for research, adequate care options, future better treatments, and finding a cure for Parkinson's disease. 

Adrienne O'Neill
, the South Carolina State Director for PAN (Parkinson's Action Network), will help lead our Open Forum discussion on becoming advocates -and- educating the public in our communities and our government leaders on better policies for research and an improved quality of life for people living with Parkinson’s.   

Join us for this very interesting, challenging, and thought provoking Open Forum discussion.

For our open forum meetings we usually start with a theme or topic and go from there. Our members have an opportunity to share their own experiences; ask questions of each other; and help each other by proving solutions that they have for various issues, concerns, problems, etc.  At the open forum meetings, our members tell us they learn about things that they can't find in anywhere else, because they are learning directly from other Parkinson patients and their caregivers.

What is a PODCAST? A podcast is a series of digital media files, either audio or video, that is released and downloaded through web syndication. The mode of delivery is what differentiates podcasts from other ways of accessing media files over the Internet. New files can thus be downloaded automatically by the podcatcher and stored locally on the user's computer or other device for offline use, giving simpler access to content. Like the term broadcast, podcast can refer either to an ongoing series or episodes of a particular program.
