Featured Speaker

Becky G. Farley, PhD, MSPT, PT

Dr. Becky Farley received a PhD in Neuroscience from the University of Arizona, a Master of Science in Physical Therapy from the University of North Carolina, and a Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy from the University of Oklahoma. During her postdoc, she co-created the LSVT® BIG therapy program and completed the initial NIH research on its’ shortterm benefits. She has now created the PWR!Moves® as a comprehensive motor-cognitive approach to PD-specific functional skill training. The framework can be personalized and integrated into any setting to address functional mobility or functional fitness goals across disease severity. Locally, in 2010, she launched the PWR!Gym in Tucson, AZ – a model community facility for implementing ongoing access to cutting-edge rehabilitation, group exercise and wellness programming. Globally, Dr. Farley has trained over 7000 physical and occupational therapists and exercise professionals to work together to provide proactive and lifelong access to PD-specific rehabilitation and exercise programming.

I am a very happy member of the Jewish Community Center (The J). I am a Parkinson’s patient. When I got diagnosed the doctor told me to exercise. What better place to do that than The J. It is clean and it is safe. It is a great place because of the instructors they have and the administration they have. Check it out…it has done world’s of good for me and it probably will for you.

I did the Parkinson’s Warrior Express class today that you have on YouTube from The J. It was a great workout u0026amp; you were very explicit with directions and made sure we were safe. Thank you – it was a challenging class and I will do it again. u003cemu003eThanks for thinking of us.u003c/emu003e
