Who is this show for? Short answer: everyone. Is there something we’re not talking about that we should? Let us know and be the guest that shines the light on what we’re missing!
Robert and Susan form an interesting duo. Robert is a longtime care partner for his father with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Susan is a woman who was diagnosed with PD in 2015. They’ve both made award-winning films about their experiences with PD and are now co-founders of the non-profit, YAX! – www.yesandexercise.com.
The mission of YAX! is to provide a safe, fun and kind place for people with and affected by Parkinson’s disease to connect, empower and enhance their lives through improvisation.
That’s right: improvisation. We play – mostly online so we can get as many people as we can from as many places as we can. We do not charge. We do accept donations from those who wish to pay it forward.
Robert earned his PhD from the Interdisciplinary Health Sciences program at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. He is researching the effect of improvisation on PD and the results of his clinical trials can be found at his website, www.yesandexercise.org.
Join us for fun, laughter and your daily dose of dope(-amine).
