Unless noted otherwise in the column to the right, we meet on the first Wednesday evening of every month from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM in the San Diego Health Services Complex at 3851 Rosecrans Street, San Diego.
We also hold daytime 'Break-Out' Sessions once a month. Break-Out sessions involve persons with Parkinson’s and their care partners meeting in a group the first hour and separately the second hour to discuss topics of interest or concern, share experiences and ideas, and provide support for one another.
In March, we move our Break-Out Sessions to the Community Room at the Point Loma/Hervey Library, 3701 Voltaire Street, San Diego, CA 92107. Meetings will be held the third Saturday of the month from 12:00 to 2:00 PM in March and April, changing to the third Monday of the month from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM starting in May, 2017.
Visitors are welcome to our meetings and if you have Parkinson's yourself, or know someone who does, you are especially welcome to come by and spend some time with us in a caring, sharing and compassionate environment.
