JOURNALIST LESLEY STAHL JOINS NEUROBALANCE CENTER FOR CONVERSATION ON MOBILITY DISORDERS

 

Virtual Conversation to Center Around How to Live Better with Parkinsons, MS and Other Neuromuscular Conditions

 

 

Barrington, Ill. (May 3, 2021) – The NeuroBalance Center today announced it will host

Lived and Learned: An Intimate Conversation with Lesley Stahl,” on Sept. 23, 2021 at 7 p.m.

 

Presented virtually, the hour-long event features Stahl and NeuroBalance Center founder Joy Wagner, RN BSN, who will share strategies for adapting to and managing, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinsons Disease and other neuromuscular conditions. Stahl and Wagner also will discuss their perspectives as one caring for someone and one living with these conditions.

 

Mobility disorder conditions include Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinsons Disease, Traumatic Brain Injury, and nearly 100 other neuromuscular and autoimmune-related diseases that impact mobility, independence and quality of life. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 39 million U.S. adults, age18 years or older, have difficulties in physical functioning and more than 7 million have difficulty walking or climbing steps.

Part of our mission is to educate those living with mobility disorders, and their loved ones, Wagner said. I have been hoping Lesley Stahl would come to see what we are doing since I saw a story on CBSs Sunday Morning where she interviewed her husband, author Aaron Latham, and they discussed Parkinsons Disease and the impact a boxing program had on Aaron and his symptoms.

Wagner added that individuals with mobility disorders wish to remain active, however, more often than not, their communities lack areas or facilities to fit their specialized needs.

Since inception, the NeuroBalance Center has provided education, healthcare, rehabilitation, fitness, research, support, and community under one roof to those living with neuromuscular and autoimmune conditions that threaten independence. Wagner founded the organization after her own diagnosis with MS in 2001.The current facility was designed and built from the ground up to go beyond compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and set new standards for what a truly accessible building can be.
