St. Augustine Parkinson’s Disease Support Group
The St. Augustine Parkinson’s Disease Support Group is committed to giving patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) and their care partners access to researchers, health care practitioners, and each other.
The group meets monthly, hosting social gatherings and educational guest speakers. We also have special events to help fund raise and raise awareness to support our local Parkinson’s Community.
All of the meetings and events are free and open to the public. No registration is required. Communication about upcoming meetings and events occurs through our support group email list. Please contact the support group coordinator, Dr Melanie Lomaglio, via text, or voice message at (904) 501-8779. Alternatively, you can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all meetings are being hosted online through Zoom. Details and dates are below.
THANK YOU to everyone who helped STARS Rehab raise $5250 dollars for the Parkinson's Foundation Moving Day Jacksonville event. Our November fundraising raffle was a huge success and our local beach walk, where some of our PD STARS walked 3 miles, was the perfect ending to celebrate the importance of movement!
