For people with Parkinson's disease, exercise is one of the best ways to alleviate symptoms and slow disease progression.

Our new group exercise classes for Parkinson's disease patients provide physical and emotional benefits to participants. The programs, through the Wisconsin Athletic Club, are made possible by the annual Moving Forward: Ride/Walk for Parkinson's Disease.

Rebuilding the body and mind after a stroke or other health issue is no day at the park. But Cooper, a specially trained Animal Assisted Therapy dog, is here to help.

Along with his volunteer handler and a physical therapist, he works to help patients regain movement and balance. For Cooper and other AAT dogs, being brushed, playing games and going for walks are all in a day’s work. The program, through Health Heelers Inc., is funded by the Froedtert Hospital Foundation.

After being diagnosed with appendix cancer, Sandra Hansen-Harsh learned that 70 percent of her abdomen was filled with cancerous fluid. To save her life, Dr. Kiran Turaga used HIPEC, an alternative to traditional chemotherapy that pumped 108-degree chemotherapy drugs through her abdomen to kill any cancer cells that can’t be seen in surgery.

During winter in Wisconsin, it’s a bit more difficult to get the vitamin D our bodies need. According to Dr. Andrea Woodard, internal medicine physician at Springdale Health Center, the average adult should be getting 600 IU of vitamin D a day. 

“With less exposure to the sun in the fall and winter, and because the sun we do see has less of the specific type of UV rays that we need to produce vitamin D, we should focus on getting our vitamin D either in a supplement or in food, such as fatty fish, egg yolks or milk, and fortified orange juice, cereals and yogurts,” she says.
