April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month ….. Emory offers Hope, Help, & Support!

Apr 15, 2015

Lynn Ross, a returning guest to Eugeria! Radio hails from Montgomery, Alabama, where she began work in geriatrics as a volunteer in a nursing home. She then became Activities Director at an Assisted Living Facility in Valdosta, GA where she decided to further her education in a graduate program for Social Work. She completed her degree and moved to Atlanta to become Activities Director in an Assisted Living Home.

Lynn has been with Emory University's Department of Neurology Movement Disorders Program, helping families for 8 years. Parkinson’s, Huntington’s Disease, Ataxia, Dystopia and Turrets are a few of the diagnosis she works to support.  Some of the most recognized symptoms of Parkinson’s, “The Older Gentleman’s Disease” are hand tremors, a low soft voice, and movement challenges.

Although there is no known “cure” for Parkinson’s at this time, Emory has 43 full-time researchers, 10 support groups and an exemplary pioneer program where a Parkinson’s patient can come and be evaluated by 9 different medical professionals and be given a program of therapy…  Knowledge, Hope, Help and Support combine to provide power and peace for Parkinson’s victims and their families.
