Exercise may be key to living with Parkinson’s disease.

Dr. Becky Farley is known internationally for her research into the treatment of Parkinson’s disease through exercise and physiotherapy.

Farley believes that people with Parkinson’s disease can get better and stay better with exercise, but early intervention and continuous access to exercise is essential.

Farley will give a community lecture at the Best Western Hotel in Kelowna on Friday, Nov. 2, 1 to 3 p.m.  The lecture will provide participants with an overview of safe and effective research-based exercises that target the unique physical, emotional, and cognitive challenges for individuals living with Parkinson’s and their care partners.
