Our Guest speakers last week were from Parkinson’s Tasmania Inc, a statewide support group.
An estimated 2500 Tasmanians are living with Parkinson’s Disease. It is the second most common degenerative neurological condition after Alzheimer’s. More than 80,000 people in Australia have
Parkinson’s. It is no discriminator of race or gender. Although it is more prevalent in people aged 45 to 75 years approximately 10% of those diagnosed are 40 years or younger. For more
