    An excellent, comprehensive and informative presentation, well sequenced and spoken at a pace which allowed time for the listener to process the information. Information was well expressed in non-jargon language whereby this non-professional listener was able to fully understand the concepts presented and discussed. Thank you

    Thanks for this practical and understandable presentation. I found it helpful in setting my own experience of trying to keep up exercise in a more general context. Are you able to share your slides?

    Thank you

    Beautiful presentation. Aimed at exactly the right audience. Gives me hope that I have some things in my hands and confirms that what I am doing is on the right track. I would love a copy of your slides.

    Thanks Sandra for a great presentation. When I was diagnosed 8 years ago I asked my Neurologist what could I do to help myself. His answer was : take your meds on time and exercise. I am fitter now than ever before and at 70 years of age people do not believe that I have PD. It’s still a hard slog, but I know I am better off than so many people.

    Regards Kerry

      Hi Kerry, I am really encouraged by your comments and experience. I am 72 and was diagnosed in 2022. I have always been active but since my diagnosis have increased the amount and type of exercise I do and at 72 am probably fitter than I’ve been for several years. My symptoms are not obvious to others (although I know they’re lurking there just under the surface!) and people express surprise when I say I have PD. I was somewhat relieved to hear you say that sometimes it’s a hard slog because let’s face it – sometimes it is. However, the benefits far outweigh the alternative. All the very best on your PD journey. Anna

    Thank you Sandy for your presentation. I was very interested as I exercise daily but probably need to increase my intensity, a good reminder. I appreciated your report on your research as I had applied but was positively not a suitable candidate. Are you able to make your slides available? All the nest with future research. Thanks again
