Woman with Parkinson’s talks about it

Pierce County’s Aging and Disability Resource Center has teamed up with the Davis Phinney Foundation for Parkinson’s to offer three free community workshops in February to help people learn more about Parkinson’s and the resources available to them.

“Living and Thriving with Parkinson’s” will be presented by Davis Phinney Foundation representative Jill Ater, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2005 at the age of 42. She was awarded the Outstanding Woman in Business in 2013 and now lives in Tacoma, assisting with Parkinson’s support groups and events.

The presentations are scheduled for:

  • Feb. 6 at 6:30 p.m. at the Sumner branch of Pierce County Library System,  1116 Fryar Ave. in Sumner.
  • Feb. 10 at 10 a.m. at Pierce County Sound View Building, 3602 Pacific Ave. in Tacoma.
  • Feb. 14 at 6:30 p.m. at the University Place branch of Pierce County Library System, 3609 Market Place W. in University Place.
