LATEST HAPS NEWS
On behalf of Houston Area Parkinson Society, we invite you to participate as an underwriter of the 2019 Annual Gala, Shaken not Stirred. The event will be held at The Astorian on Sunday, October 13th at 6 pm and will include dinner, drinks, and music. We hope you will be part of this festive evening as we recognize the extraordinary work that is taking place within the Parkinson’s community in Houston.
Your support of this event will raise essential funds for the specialized programs HAPS offers. Because people can live for many years with the progressive symptoms associated with Parkinson’s, the services the organization makes available free of charge are fundamental to long-term successful management of the disease.
Join us for the first annual Partner for Parkinson’s event presented by the HAPS Young Professionals. The event will be held on Saturday, November 16, 2019 at Yellow Rose Distilling. Expect food, drink and fun! Attendees have the option to purchase just tickets, or to register to participate in the corn hole tournament. There will also be a Best Duos Costume Contest.

Please note, if tickets are still available on the day of the event, prices will increase.

Houston Area Parkinson Society’s NEWEST educational tour is coming soon to a county near you! HAPS kicks off this first tour with an in-demand lecture on Balance, Falls, and Parkinson’s. Maggie Abbott, PT, DPT will be traveling to all eight counties in our service area, bringing this information to your community.
Have you heard the phrases ‘Just don’t fall’ as advice to prevent a fall with Parkinson’s? ‘Falling is a part of aging, right?’ or ‘Only walk with your cane.’
Don’t believe everything you hear - join Dr. Abbott to learn about body balance and strategies to prevent a fall related to Parkinson’s. Learn easy exercises to improve confidence in your balance and learn fall prevention tips to use around the house and community.
MISSION & PURPOSE
By using a whole-human approach to community building, we reduce the fear and isolation associated with a Parkinson’s diagnosis.
We exist to ensure that no one faces a Parkinson’s diagnosis alone.
