    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I just wanted to let you guys know that I found the BEST thing ever to keep with papers that you take to the hospital!

    It's called Aware in Care Hospital Action Plan and is FREE. Comes with all sorts of information to share with health care professionals, a Parkinson's metal bracelet and a zipper up bag to keep this stuff in, including small bottles of your PD medications.

    I plan on taking my kit into my Neuro's office at my next appt so he can see and maybe encourage other patients to get one as well.

    I have shown it to my friends (no one else has Parkinson's) and they read just about everything in it. Their opinion has been extremely positive!
