Karl and I would like to announce the closing of the Parkinson’s support group in Fairfax City. The group met for 13 years to provide support in Fairfax City to those living with Parkinson’s. We plan on continuing sending out occasional informational emails and posting to the blog parkinsonspower.wordpress.com. If you would like to remove yourself from this email listing, please reply and let us know.
We encourage those of you who need support to reach out to the following groups in the Fairfax area. These groups are eager to welcome you!

Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area (PFNCA) has a comprehensive listing of support groups in this area. Their website is www.parkinsonfoundation.org.
If you would like to start a group in your area, the Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area has a support group leader meeting planned on July 25th This would be a great event to meet other group leaders and learn how to build a group. Fairfax County/Fairfax City has very few PD support groups and needs your help!
PFNCA Support Group Leader meeting to take place July 25th
The Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area (PFNCA) will hold a meeting for area support group leaders. For many years, PFNCA periodically convened a group of area support group leaders to share best practices and address challenges faced when leading groups. At the request of many, we are pleased to schedule this meeting to continue with this effort. If you are interested in starting your own support group and becoming a support group leader, please contact Jamie Smith by email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We hope to see you at local Parkinson’s events. Best wishes to you on your journey with Parkinson’s.
Angela and Karl
