Thursday, January 21 at 10:30 p.m. – Shaken: Journey Into the Mind of Parkinson's Patient

(Rochester, NY) Journey into the mind of a young onset Parkinson's patient, whose brain surgery (DBS) is miraculous and bittersweet because there is still no cure.   As part of its annual Dialogue on Disability: The Herman & Margaret Schwartz Community Series, WXXI and Al Sigl Community of Agencies are pleased to present Shaken: Journey into the Mind of Parkinson's Patient on Thursday, January 21 at 10:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV (DT21.1/cable1011/cable11).

Dialogue on Disability: The Herman & Margaret Schwartz Community Series, a partnership between WXXI and Al Sigl Community of Agencies, is a week-long outreach initiative designed to stimulate community dialogue about the perspectives and abilities of people with disabilities. At the heart of this initiative is programming broadcast on WXXI-TV and AM 1370 that celebrates the amazing lives of people with disabilities. Dialogue on Disability runs January 18-24. Dialogue on Disability is made possible thanks to support from the Fred L. Emerson Foundation.
