Parkinson’s Disease event set for April 4

April is Parkinson’s Awareness month, and Southern Utah University, along with the Southwest Parkinson’s Support Group, will hold an event on Wednesday, April 4. It runs from 2 to 4 p.m. at Snap Fitness, 145 N. Main in Cedar City.

Jens Howe, a pre-physical therapy student, launched a non-contact boxing clinic in October to Iron County residents who are struggling with the disease. In the last six months, Howe has seen improvements in participant’s coordination, balance, flexibility and overall well-being.

The goal of this event is to provide educational information to the community about PD, as well as introduce people to this amazing program, which is all organized by student volunteers. Learn more at
