For 2016 we have decided to add an optimistic look to our web page as well. The colors we use are from an “optimist” pallet. I think you will agree the pages look cleaner and are easier to read. We also look to expand our content into what our program services funded reflect, that of how to live a little better as you overcome the effects of the disease.
Lastly we find it increasingly difficult to keep a myriad of pages and systems current in the age of instantaneous information. Typically these web pages are updated only one or two times a year. To overcome this we have added a Facebook feed. If you are not a Facebook user you now will be able to still benefit from content in our pages by using mjfpd.org.

An unusual therapy for those with PD is gaining in popularity. It involves the use of the Nintendo Wii video game system. Contained in the sub pages, accessed using the sidebar menu to the left, are articles and video clips offering evidence of the viability of such therapy. These studies primarily focus on the physical benefits of these therapies but the phisiological benefits should be given note. It was discovered that those participating in the Wii studies experienced in rise in mental attitude.
