Resisting the Pull of Parkinson’s More than one and a half million Americans live with the tremors and shakes of Parkinson's disease and 50,000 new patients are diagnosed each year. There's no cure, but researchers in Northeast Ohio are making exciting progress in discovering the cause and identifying therapies. Can yoga, pilates, swimming, or dance slow the progress and even the onset of Parkinson's? It might not be as easy as riding a bike, but that might help. A lot. Join us Monday at 9 on the Sound of Ideas.




Dr. Mark Smith, Professor, Department of Pathology, Case Western Reserve University
Dr. Jay Alberts, Associate Staff, Biomedical Engineering and the Center for Neurological Restoration, Cleveland Clinic
Cherie Mann, Parkinson's Patient
Doug Bahnuik, Parkinson's Patient
