First Parkinson Café May 21 at the library

POSTED: 05/9/14 11:16 AM

St. Maarten – Anja Bronius has taken the initiative to establish a Parkinson Café – a place where patients, volunteer helpers and others meet to share their experiences. The first Parkinson Café is scheduled for Wednesday May 21, from 10 a.m. until noon at the Philipsburg Jubilee Library.

“The objective is contact with others who share the same experience,” Bronius says. “Also, to talk about new developments related to Parkinson. And it is of course also for sociability.”

Doctors diagnosed Anja Bronius with Parkinson on April 4, 2002. The 50-year-old moved to St. Maarten in 2008. “I noticed that there is nothing for Parkinson patients on the island,” she says. “In the Netherlands there is a Parkinson Café in every large city.

With sufficient interest, after the first Café on May 21, the next meetings are scheduled for June 18, July 16 and August 20. All dates fall on a Wednesday.

For information call the library at 542 29 70, or Anja Bronius at 526 07 79.
