A WORD FROM WENDY
April showers bring May flowers, right??? We can only hope and I am seriously hoping. Although, the
states we may have one more snow fall in APRIL, I am praying that is a nasty April fool's joke. If "outside" is getting you down, let's take an inside look at WWC. Classes are "heating-up" and we are excited. Our Parkinson's and other Neurological Disease Exercise support group is going strong with new attendees. Our balance class has DOUBLED in size and class members are reporting positive outcomes just after a month of class. Check out the schedule on the left, we love growing, meeting new people and having the opportunity to improve quality of life. Referrals are our "spice-of-life", so let us know if we can be of help to anyone you know. With full steam ahead, we will be at the Parkinson's Disease Symposium on April 12th. I will be speaking and the WWC TEAM will be leading and demonstrating exercises. Have you ever watched nearly 200 people in unison exercising? It is amazing. We will have WSU Physical Therapy (PT) students joining us and encouraging the movements. We are thrilled with their support and energy. In fact, we may be involved with another research project next fall with WSU PT Department (faculty: Dr. Cam Wilson) and I am very excited with the potential opportunity. : ) Speaking of WSU, we continue to have Physician Assistant students observing on Thursday mornings. How wonderful to have eager minds seeking understanding of what advanced personal training can contribute to the Health Care hierarchy. Thank you to Professor Sue Nyberg for encouraging this association.
