Parkinson Canada – 2021 Virtual Webinar Series

 

Small Steps for BIG Impact

How making little changes can empower you on your journey of living well with Parkinson’s disease

 

Monday,  June 28, 2021 2:00 PM ET / 11:00 AM PT (1 hour duration)

Made on a daily basis, small improvements can lead to significant changes over time.  Many of you have shared how challenging it has been to keep moving forward, especially on the most difficult of days.  We are honoured to highlight some of the inspirational journeys from our own Parkinson community, who will share how they are taking small steps in their own lives to keep connected and stay well.  Our hope is that in hearing others’ experiences, you may also find your own motivation to try something new or find validation in the steps you are already taking in your own lives. 

 

As Squire Bill Widener once said, “Do what you can, with what you’ve got, where you are.”.   This is a wonderful reminder that we can move in the right direction by focusing on the things we CAN do, with the resources available, from exactly where we are now.  No Matter What.

 

We will also be hearing from Kelly Williams, Clinical Resource Nurse with the Movement Disorder Clinic at the Deer Lodge Centre in Winnipeg, MB.   Kelly will share with us some insights she has gained in her experiences with patients who are living life to the fullest, and what steps they are making to do just that!  She will also share her expertise as a Movement Disorder Nurse and what she sees as important steps to take in order to support healthy physical and emotional wellness.

Kelly Williams RNBN GNC(c) has over 19 years of nursing experience, with the last 9 years as a Clinical Resource Nurse for the Movement Disorder Clinic at Deer Lodge Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba. In this role she has co-created and implemented an Early PD Course, Advanced Therapy Program, Get It On Time Program, as well as a Hospital Management Kit.  She has provided education and counselling for those newly-diagnosed, as well as continued support for healthy living and the ongoing needs for those living with PD, including medication management.  She has provided countless educational sessions for Health Care Professionals and conferences, and is a part of a multidisciplinary team specializing in Parkinson’s disease.
