We meet monthly every second Saturday from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm in the Meeting Room at the Quincy Public Library (526 Jersey Street). If you have been diagnosed with Parkinson's OR you provide care/support for someone dealing with Parkinson's, we'd love to get to know you! People from Quincy, the surrounding communities, and from Missouri are part of our group. We have group discussions as well as informative speakers (see our list of Previous Presenters below) to educate, encourage, and even challenge us. We also have a Caregivers group that meets monthly, exercise programs, and therapy groups (see our Opportunities page for more information). Feel free to Contact Us if you have any questions and we hope to see YOU at our next meeting!
