Another Tikvah Evening

Last night Tikvah held its third lecture to the public. Danny Loney, an incredible person challenged with Parkinson for over EIGHTEEN years talked about how Tai Chi has helped him to deal with the symptoms of PD and then answered questions from the audience, including practical tips for dealing with such problems as freezing gait. At the end, he spoke about the power of giving, and that through helping others we are emulating Hashem.

Dr. Oren Cohen explained the basics of Parkinson, and then provided an overview of the various pharmaceutical options, all the while emphasizing that every drug has its side effects, some of them which can be extremely unpleasant, and that it’s the patient’s  responsibility to do his utmost to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
