LAS VEGAS (KXNT) – The Parkinson’s community in Southern Nevada, in partnership with the Davis Phinney Foundation, will hold the Movement in Parkinson’s Fair on Saturday, January 27.

Representatives from the Cleveland Clinic, Acadia Pharmaceuticals, Medtronic and Martie Vlcek from Rock Steady Boxing will be in attendance, as well as guest speaker Nan Little, author of “If I Can Climb Kilimanjaro, Why Can’t I Brush My Teeth?”
