Could cultivating patience help you cope better with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease (PD)?

The majority of individuals with PD, responding to a 2015 Parkinson’s Alliance survey think so. They reported that patience helps them cope with their symptoms, and over half of the participants reported that patience increased their engagement in social activities.

You may have been told by your parents or teachers that patience is a virtue to acquire, but, do you really know what patience is and how it might actually help anyone cope with disease?

Join Guests: Carol Walton, CEO of the Parkinson Alliance, and Neuropsychologist, Jeffrey Wertheimer, PhD, who will discuss 2015 Parkinson's Alliance survey results on patience and exercise, and other aspects of physical and psychological well-being as it relates to individuals with PD.
