Meet Carol Clupny

On Thursday, February 13th at 10 am, the Morro Bay/Los Osos Support Group welcomes Carol Clupny, author of "The Ribbon of Road Ahead:  One Woman's Remarkable Journey with Parkinson's Disease".  Suffering for years from unexplained symptoms, Carol was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 2008.  Learning to live with a progressive neurological disease challenged her once active lifestyle.  Shocked when getting outside to the mailbox became a struggle, she began walking, trekking over a thousand miles on pilgrimage trails in France and Spain.  Reading that bicycling helped mitigate the symptoms of Parkinson's Disease, she started riding, cycling across Iowa four times with the Pedaling for Parkinson's Team.  In 2016, Carol had a deep brain stimulation procedure which further slowed the advancement of symptoms. Please join us to hear Carol share her insights and experiences throughout her own PD journey.  Everyone is welcome to attend!

The Bay/Osos Support Group meets at the Morro Bay Senior Center, 1001 Kennedy Way, Morro Bay.

Carol is happy to personalize and autograph any books purchased. (Cash Only)

Community Resources

Community circle

One of our primary goals as your Parkinson Association is "to promote the exchange of information with health care professionals."  We want to help our local Parkinson Community find the Parkinson-specific resources that they need.  The following listings include physicians, health care professionals, and fitness professionals who have completed training to be a Parkinson or Movement Disorder specialist.

Also included are links to the large National Organizations.   

World Parkinson’s Congress Kyoto, Japan— Barrie’s video blog

I am on my way to the World Parkinsons Conference (WPC)in Kyoto, Japan. Each day of the Congress I will be adding short informational videos with the key findings from this Congress including, information about therapies, diets, best PD exercises, new drugs in development, latest findings about the relationship between the gut biome and Parkinson’s and hopefully news about the possibility for a cure in our lifetimes. We will also be having some fun at this event which I will share as well. Stay tuned!

"The World Parkinson's Congress is taking place this year in Kyoto Japan and will be attended by over 3000 doctors, researchers, care givers and people with Parkinson's disease. Barrie Cleveland, a member of the CCPA board and a Parkinson' warrior, will be in attendance and providing a daily video blog on the latest research, therapies, exercise and diet information and how to live better with new gadgets for those suffering from PD.
