Have you wondered whether you or a loved one with Parkinson’s or essential tremor might benefit from a Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) implant? April, which is Parkinson’s Awareness Month, is a great time to get some answers.

Join Dr. Marianne De Lima, board-certified neurologist and movement disorders expert at Neurology Associates Neuroscience Center, for a live video event on Friday, April 24, 2020, at noon.

Dr. De Lima will discuss some of the signs that often qualify patients for DBS, which helps manage Parkinson’s and essential tremor symptoms in ways medication may not be able to do. She will also take questions from attendees.

There is no cost to attend – this event is free courtesy of Abbott. For registration information, send an email to media@neurologyassociates.com.

As November comes to a close, we wanted to highlight two events that took place during the month and share some photos.

The first was the 2019 Walk to End Alzheimer’s, held by the Alzheimer’s Association. Neurology Associates sponsored a refreshment table and a water station. More poignantly, several of our staff took time out of their busy weekends to join the walk in downtown Phoenix in support of a cure for Alzheimer’s.

The second was the 15th Annual Run for Ryan House. Ryan House is a 12,500-square-foot home in downtown Phoenix that extends respite and palliative care to children (and their families) facing life-limiting or end-of-life conditions. Our Dr. Marnie Whitley got us involved in this meaningful fundraiser; Nov. 17 marked the sixth time she has participated in the Run for Ryan House.

“Doing the run is just a small way to help support them and get awareness out to the community that they are there,” Dr. Whitley says. “A lot of people don’t know about them and there are likely families that may appreciate knowing – either now or in the future.”

Check out photos below from both the Walk to End Alzheimer’s and the latest Run for Ryan House.

Be Part of Supporting an Incredibly Meaningful Cause

As a neurological practice providing all-in-one care, Neurology Associates Neuroscience Center offers access to naturopathic medicine. This means our practitioner, Dr. Marnie Whitley, ND, LPC, brings ideas that may not necessarily appear to mesh with traditional views of neurology. Take, for example, the upcoming Run for Ryan House, in which Neurology Associates is participating and which we are gladly sponsoring.

This annual run raises money for Ryan House, a 12,500-square-foot home in downtown Phoenix that extends respite and palliative care to children (and their families) facing life-limiting or end-of-life conditions.

Nov. 17 will mark the sixth time Dr. Whitley has taken part in the Run for Ryan House.

“I like doing events that have a good cause and I think their cause is awesome,” Dr. Whitley says. “When having to cope with illness, and a child’s terminal illness specifically, having services that address the needs of the whole family is tremendously impactful in helping to address the stress and can help mitigate the feeling of loneliness.”

Ryan House holds several fundraisers each year.

“Doing the run is just a small way to help support them and get awareness out to the community that they are there,” Dr. Whitley says. “A lot of people don’t know about them and there are likely families that may appreciate knowing – either now or in the future.”

When Neurology Associates’ CEO Ali Hajaig found out that Dr. Whitley was again participating in Run for Ryan House, he asked to have the clinic get more involved.

“This is such an incredible community cause,” Hajaig says. “I’m honored that Neurology Associates has the opportunity to support Ryan House and contribute to its success.”

Come join Ryan House and Neurology Associates on Sunday, Nov. 17, at Kiwanis Park for this special, truly meaningful day. We have several staff participating in the run (including Dr. Whitley!) and we’ll be on hand with a table to answer questions.

As a neuroscience center, many of the patients we treat suffer from Alzheimer’s. And we would like nothing more than to see this condition eradicated. The costs – both human and financial – of this form of dementia are too high. We want to live in an Alzheimer’s-free world.

That’s why we are sponsoring and participating in the upcoming Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

Look for the Neurology Associates Neuroscience Center logo at water stations and refreshment tables along the two-mile route. We’ll be there in person, too, with a team of staff members ready to walk to support a cure for Alzheimer’s. We’ll be easy to find with our Neurology Associates t-shirts. Come say hello!

Join us on Saturday, Nov. 2, at the Wesley Bolin Plaza in downtown Phoenix. Registration opens at 7:30 a.m. Before the walk begins, the Alzheimer’s Association will hold what will, by all accounts, be a moving ceremony. Every participant will also receive a Promise Garden flower in a specific, symbolic color:

Walkers may plant their flowers in the Promise Garden or make a dedication.

All the money raised goes to the Alzheimer’s Association Desert Southwest Chapter, which uses the funds to further its care, support and research efforts, including helping people in central Arizona affected by Alzheimer’s. We really appreciate that this nonprofit organization puts peoples’ donations to work in beneficial ways, and we are proud to be taking part in an event that changes lives.
