Event Description

Just a reminder of our meeting tomorrow morning at 9:30am.
Our meeting will be at the New Braunfels Regional Rehabilitation Hospital at 2014 Sundance Pkwy.

Tomorrow Kimberly Rivera with Abbvie Neuro Science/Parkinson's Duopa will show a presentation on the Duopa Pump which was approved January 2016 by the FDA as a method of introducing carbidopa levodopa into the body(I believe through the small intestine.   The pump is similar to an insulin pump.
Looking forward to seeing everyone there
Thank you

Tommy

What's Happening

Even though the calendar doesn’t say summer is here, the high temperatures of the recent weeks tell a different story.


TIPS FOR STAYING COOL


Wear cool clothing: Dress in light-weight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing, preferably of natural fabrics like cotton. Use hats and umbrellas outside. Parkinson’s patients are at a higher risk of melanoma, so cover up with light clothing and/or use sunscreen regularly. If you have not seen your dermatologist in a year or more, make an appointment for a skin check.

Drink plenty of fluids: Drink plenty of water and fruit or vegetable juice even if you don’t feel thirsty. No alcohol, coffee or tea. Seek medical help if you suspect dehydration.

Avoid direct sun: Stay indoors during the hottest hours, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you want to be outside, make sure it’s during cooler hours and you are in the shade, on a covered porch, or under an umbrella.

Don’t forget the sunscreen.
