July 2020 Newsletter and Calendar
Message from the Board
Thank you to all who responded to the Survey.  What's next, you ask. The Board learned that you would like more opportunities to share information, especially on specific Parkinson's related topics . Something smaller than a Forum, more focused than Support Group and featuring a "give-and-take" conversation with those who have experience and expertise. We also learned that you would like to have more options for movement classes. 
We heard you! Watch this space in August to see our first offers and announcements. Until then we are carrying on with virtual classes and hope you will continue your strong support.
July Forum/Webinar with Dr. Diviya Kaul on Medications in Parkinson’s Disease

Diviya Kaul, MD is a Movement Disorders Specialist currently working at Kaiser Permanente in Walnut Creek. Dr. Kaul completed medical schooling at St. George’s University School of Medicine in Grenada.
She then completed her internship in Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY and went on to complete her residency in neurology at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, NH. Discovering in residency she had a passion for treating patients with Parkinson’s disease and Atypical Parkinsonian syndromes, she developed a dance class for people with Parkinson’s (inspired by the Mark Morris Dance Group in New York).

After successfully completing her residency, Dr. Kaul was accepted, and completed her Movement Disorders Fellowship at Stanford Movement Disorders Center (under the direction of Dr. Helen Bronte-Stewart). Since then, she has been working with Comprehensive Movement Disorders Center at Kaiser Permanente.
