Events and Support Groups for People With Movement Disorders

If you are living with a movement disorder (or are a caregiver), there is a wealth of educational and support programs in the Baltimore area that can help you learn more about your condition and network with others. These workshops, seminars, singing groups and dance and exercise programs support the well-being of all local families touched by movement disorders.

Attention: The Johns Hopkins Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorder Center has decided in the interest of our patient population, we will NOT be holding any outreach events effective immediately until further notice. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our Health Educator with any questions at 410-955-6684.
