Specialist physician speaking to Parkinson’s group on Friday

TERRE HAUTE — A physician with expertise in internal and transplant medicine will speak to the Terre Haute Parkinson’s Support Group at its meeting on Friday.

The session is scheduled for 10 to 11 a.m. in Westminster Village Community Center at 1120 Davis Drive.

The speaker will be Dr. Manish Gera, who is board certified in internal medicine and nephrology and accredited in internal medicine. He practices at several Wabash Valley hospitals, including Union Hospital and Terre Haute Regional Hospital.

Parkinson’s afflicts an estimated 1.5 million Americans, with symptoms that include tremors of the limbs, speech difficulty and slowness of movement. No cure has been discovered. Treatments and medicines have been shown to slow its progression in some cases.

Anyone with questions can contact support group founder Loyal Bishop by phone at 812-242-4668.
