Tampa Connector Update

Tampa Bay Helpline

I wrote again about the need for a Tampa Bay Connector/Helpline/Hotline to answer very specific and granular questions about patient needs in PD. You will recognize some of the prose from earlier posts. It appeared Sunday Jan. 24 in the Tampa Tribune. Those of you with social media, please consider promoting it. Maybe we can create a small bandwagon in its favor and get institutional help. My bet is on Florida Hospital-Tampa, the former University Community Hospital, stepping up. A well-placed neurologist tipped me that something IS going to happen SOMEWHERE and to stay patient.


Here’s another strong vote for hot, sweaty exercise as a key component of your exercise program.

I am feeling rejuvenated by my regimen of three days of Rock Steady Boxing and two days of spinning at the South Tampa Family Y. That spinning class needs and deserves more participants than it has now. See my earlier post for details.


Anxiety is a major complaint of Parkies, but little research is being dome on the topic. Here’s a valuable webinar on the topic.
