the edmond j. safra parkinson's wellness program

This ground-breaking program was founded in 2007 to help improve the lives of those impacted by Parkinson's through exercise, support, education, and medical/community collaboration. Our Parkinson's exercise, support groups, and events are designed to keep those impacted by Parkinson's and their families active, connected, and empowered. With a primary focus on dignity, hope, and possibility, this program has grown into a welcoming hub for the New York City Parkinson's community and has been adapted nationally in partnership with the National Parkinson's Foundation as the Edmond J Safra National Parkinson's Wellness Initiative.
