TKO for Parkinson’s: PD Gladiators and the American Parkinson Disease Association on Eugeria! Radio!

Aug 06, 2014

Larry Kahn started his career as an attorney after graduating from the Yale School of Law.  In 1992, he moved to Atlanta to work on Bellsouth’s legal staff.  A number of years later, Larry embarked on a second career as a novelist, publishing two works of fiction.  Then, in 2010, he started a “3rd career” when he received a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease.  Not one to sit still or feel sorry for himself, he made it his mission to serve others suffering from the same disease.  Discovering that there was a link between exercise and slowing the progression of the disease, Larry founded PD Gladiators, a non-profit organization devoted to combating Parkinson’s disease with vigorous exercise.

Joining Larry in the studio today is return guest Eric Burkard.  Eric earned his Bachelors degree in Psychology from the SUNY at Buffalo, and his Masters degree in International Management from the Monterey Institute of International Studies.  Eric is the President of Burkard Insurance, and agency that specializes in long-term care funding solutions.  He has helped hundreds of individuals look forward to retirement without jeopardizing their financial security or having to be a burden to their families due to unexpected events affecting life and long-term health.   One of Eric’s passions is raising awareness and funds for research and family resources for those individuals and their families suffering from Parkinson’s disease.  To that end, Eric is the Georgia Chapter President of the American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA).
