Hear the story of 2020 guest Susan Scarlett's Parkinson's diagnosis and the documentary she inspired with her determination, "Victory Swim."

In careful consideration of our theme, “LIVING WELL: You Can Thrive in the Days to Come,” as well as the unprecedented events of the past year, we have new ideas to help you live well and thrive in the midst of challenges.

To ensure everyone is comfortable and staying in good health, the symposium will be hosted virtually on October 1, 2021. You can still enjoy all of the symposium’s workshops and information sessions from the comfort of your own home.

Tickets for the new virtual symposium are $25.00 per household.

Within Our Reach is our unique patient educational program that recognizes the importance of engaging patients, caregivers and family members in an active process to learn the new skills necessary to manage their chronic medical condition.
