Parkinson's disease is a chronic and progressive movement disorder. It's thought that a combination of genetics and environmental factors play a role in triggering it. Nearly a million people in the U.S. are living with the disorder. We'll examine Parkinson’s disease and the latest in treatment options. Plus a look at a unique movement program for people with Parkinson’s at local YMCA's.
