The Lakeshore Foundation has launched two new programs that can positively serve those with Parkinson's in the State of Alabama: a Movement to Music Study, and a new online membership option.
Movement to Music The Movement to Music Study (M2M) is a rhythmic-based exercise program delivered through a web-based platform in which you can actively engage in the comfort of your own home. The program will begin in August. Individuals who will be a good fit for the M2M study should be between the ages of 18-70 and diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. The only qualifications for participants to join the study is that they must have limited mobility in one side and currently use a power or manual wheelchair for mobility. Testing and classes are all done remotely. Individuals can join this study from anywhere in Alabama, and across the U.S.
