While Parkinsons Disease is not curable, there are some ways to delay its advance and one approach is through regular exercise.

Mandy Travis Henderson, certified fitness instructor, will be sharing some of those exercises proven to “delay the disease” 10 a.m. Thursday at the Creston Area Parkinson Disease Support Group meeting at Crest Baptist Church, 1211 N. Poplar St.

Henderson plans to start this Parkinson Disease specific fitness program, Delay the Disease, in Creston this fall, so this will be a chance to preview the program.

Those diagnosed with PD, caregivers and health care professionals are invited. Call 782-7521 for more information.
