Parkinson’s Support and Wellness is proud to announce the naming of the Annual Spring Forum after Harvey Chyette, who passed away in January 2019. According to his family, when Harvey was diagnosed with Parkinson disease in 2000 he was shocked, and at that time did not fully understand the disease. Although Harvey struggled at times, he did not surrender to the disease and was an example of courage and persistence. After his diagnosis, he developed his own accounting business, was fully involved in leadership positions with a charitable organization, attended as many Parkinson seminars as he could, regularly attended Parkinson support groups, as well as Parkinson yoga and exercise classes. He also traveled frequently with his family. Harvey remained positive and hopeful that there would be a cure. We are honored to be able to remember Harvey in this way. We are deeply appreciative for a grant from the Chyette family through the Morris Braun Foundation in Harvey’s memory that will help to fund the Spring Educational Forum for the next five years.

Special Thanks to our 2019 Sponsors and exhibitors
