After 20 years at Avenidas — with a hiatus of 18 months when we were at Little House Activity Center in Menlo Park — the Palo Alto Parkinson’s Disease (PD) Support Group meeting is moving to Channing House, another downtown Palo Alto location. This move is effective as of October 9, 2019. This group provides educational speakers for anyone wanting to learn more about PD. Meetings are free and open to the public. No RSVP is required.

Join the group’s email list by contacting the support group leader, Robin Riddle, by email or phone (650-724-6090). We send out two reminders emails per month — one about a week before each meeting and one usually a day before each meeting. In those emails, we share guest speaker details (name, affiliation, and topic).
Note that these meetings are NOT recorded. In general, the only way to receive information shared by the guest speaker is to attend the meeting. If you can’t make it but are interested in the meeting topic, we suggest you ask a friend or family member to attend on your behalf.
