Parkinson’s NSW Support Group for individuals suffering from Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and for carers of those with PD now meets in the sub-Branch meeting room of Penrith RSL on the third Thursday of the month between 10:00-12:00 pm.  The first meeting of the club was held on 20 April 2017 with Parkinson’s NSW CEO Jo-Anne Reeves in attendance.

Adrian Unger the founder of Punching Parko’s provided and insight to the program he has established.  This involves people with PD undertaking boxing training (not actual boxing).  Adrian said that people who undertake the program have demonstrated many positive results including improved balance and mobility and in some cases a reduction in medication.

The next meeting will be on 18 May 2017.
