Youthful Parkinson Circle in 2020
The Youthful Parkinson Circle (YPC) support group is open to Parkinson Society Singapore members who have been diagnosed before age 60 or with/without school-going dependents. The support group meets every two months and also welcomes those who are newly diagnosed with Parkinson’s.
The experiences of people who are diagnosed with young-onset Parkinson's disease (before the age of 60) are different from other people with Parkinson's. Each meeting will have a different talk conducted by medical professionals as well as a sharing session for participants to exchange tips and discuss experiences about life with Parkinson's disease.
