A Community of Citizens Fighting Against Parkinson’s Disease
We are building a community of individuals dedicated to improving the lives of those fighting against Parkinson’s disease. To accomplish this, we will create a unique Fort Worth resource to provide our community with information on health-related Parkinson’s resources, access to exercise activities, educational seminars, and opportunities to participate in research which will better inform our understanding of how PD influences voice, speech, and swallowing.
- To provide access for people with Parkinson’s disease to evidence-based exercise programs for maintenance and rehabilitation of motor and sensory functions.
- To connect individuals in the Fort Worth community to a network of committed citizens seeking to understand Parkinson’s disease and finding ways to improve the quality of life for those dealing with it.
- To advance our knowledge of Parkinson’s disease and how it impacts motor and non-motor functions.
Endeavor Parkinsonology of Fort Worth will be supporting people with PD by linking individuals and their families to health care resources in the Fort Worth area. Information and contacts for health resources include:
Medical professionals specializing in PD
Rehabilitation professionals specializing in PD
Health care professionals specializing in PD
Exercise programs designed for people with PD
Endeavor Parkinsonology partners with Punching Out Parkinson’s.
A new opportunity has arisen that we are excited to tell you about! Due to charitable gifts to Endeavor Parkinsonology from friends in our our community, we are able to provide sponsorships for people with PD to participate in Punching Out Parkinson’s (https://punchingoutparkinsons.org/), the boxing program developed by world champion boxer Paulie Ayala. Paulie has a passion for helping people fight against PD, leading weekly classes at his University of Hard Knocks (https://uhkgym.com/) on Camp Bowie road.
