About the Program:

Delay the DiseaseTM is an evidenced-based fitness program for people living with Parkinson’s disease. The program is designed to empower participants by optimizing their physical function and helping to delay the progression of symptoms.

Ohio Health Delay the Disease™ offers an educational seminar that is interactive and fun. This course will provide evidenced-based updates on the effects of exercise on the symptomatic management of Parkinson’s Disease (PD). Each participant will be able to in­tegrate this knowledge along with teaching techniques to create and lead a comprehensive community-based PD-specific exercise program based on the Delay the Disease fitness agenda. The participants will select appropriate assessment tools and outcome measures for the evaluation of people living with PD. They will understand the importance of motivation, enthusiasm, optimism and methods of teaching. These methods will be used to design a fitness agenda to treat a specific symptom related to PD. Ultimately, each participant will acquire knowledge to successfully create and implement an interdisciplinary exercise and wellness program for people with PD.  Please visit this website  for more information about Delay the Disease.
