Open house is for patients

A Parkinson’s open house will be held 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Thursday, April 11 at M.O.G. (Medically Oriented Gym), 29 Foden Road, South Portland. Open House activities include a

Parkinson’s group exercise class demonstration, information on the evidence-based benefits of exercise on Parkinson’s disease and free cupcakes from local bakery Nothing Bakes Like a Parrott.

The M.O.G. Parkinson’s program is the site of a research study being conducted by the University of New England. Current data, which is still in the collection phase, shows those individuals participating in a regular exercise program at least twice a week have little to no progression in their Parkinson’s symptoms over one year.

For more information, call 650-9869.
