Spend a week at Bastyr University studying strategies designed to improve PD outcomes.

  • Data driven: Strategies will be biologically plausible and supported by the published, peer-reviewed literature.
  • Translational: Moving from the lab to Patients with Parkinson's (PwP).
  • Experiential: Opportunities for hiking, boxing, tai chi, yoga, strength, balance , meditation, Hooverball, cycling, etc.
  • Pragmatic: Immediately relevant to PwP. Participants will go home with real-world solutions.
  • Patient-centered: Recommendations catered to your priorities/symptoms/situation.
  • Integrative: We’ll send a copy of our suggestions to your physicians detailing the strategies along with explanations.
