Official opening Parkinson Quebec Heart of the Laurentians
On Tuesday, December 12th,, Parkinson Quebec Heart of the Laurentians held its official opening of its regional offices located in the center of the village of Saint-Sauveur.
Over 50 people attended a 5-7 cocktail event, including members of the community, government representatives, collaborating not-for-profit organizations, and people living with Parkinson’s as well as their caregivers.
Mayor Jacques Gariepy attended the official opening, as did Executive Director Nicole Charpentier, and Board Chairman of Parkinson Québec Paul F. Dupre. Also in attendance were Regional Coordinator Alice Boulianne and Development Agent Josephine Piazza.
The presence of Parkinson Quebec in the Laurentians has been made possible by a grant from the Minister de la Famille under the framework of the Program Québec Ami des Ainés.
With this new presence, we hope to raise awareness in the Laurentians community to the reality of people living with Parkinson’s disease and encourage all its citizens to be purveyors of change.
