Exercise and movement classes and a support group for people with Parkinson’s and their care partners are now available at the Leventhal-Sidman Jewish Community Center (333 Nahanton Street) in Newton.
The JCC and the Movement Disorder Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center are partnering to provide these programs to the community. The offerings are part of the Edmond J.
